Jan 10--Frank Mahovlich

Frank Mahovlich

Frank Mahovlich

Mahovlich entered the league in 1958 and won the Calder Trophy as the league's top rookie, beating out another hotshot left winger named Bobby Hull.Frank Mahovlich is synonymous with the golden age of hockey. With his graceful skating, and powerful shots, the Big M led the Toronto Maple Leafs to four Stanley Cup victories. A fifteen time NHL All-Star, he was a natural choice for the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1981. Mahovlich is one of a very select few who would star with Canada's two most cherished sports franchises, the Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens. He also starred with the Detroit Red Wings.
533 goals and 1103 points, 9 NHL All Star teams and 6 Stanley Cup rings tells you just how good he was.
Frank Mahovlich was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1981, and in 1998, in recognition of his years of class on the ice and off, he was appointed to the Canadian Senate by Prime Minister Jean Chretien.

Having trouble uploading images tonight. Will add later.


Received these blue ink signed cards TTM.

Front and back of blue ink signed postcard he included. I believe that's Bobby Clarke's body there and an early Guy LaFleur before he abandoned the helmet.

Return envelope postmarked 1984.

  1. Would you be interested in selling or trading the signed 1961 Parkhurst card? I am trying to put together a complete signed set and that would be very helpful. Shoot me an email: Thanks! Casey
