K-dog and I were wondering why the Montreal players are flagless in the 63-64 Parkhurst set. The Maple Leafs have the Canadian flag, the Red Wings have the U.S. flag and the Montreal players have the crazy 3D effect line art. Why didn't the two Canadian teams have the Canadian flag? These are serious questions that need answers hockey experts...

Hi Jeff,

Not the Ontario flag - that was the Canadian flag at the time (no Maple Leaf until 1965). Why not Montreal too? Don't know.

Cheers,
Blair

Blair, I edited my original post, maybe nobody will notice my lack of history knowledge!:D

No worries! I wonder if anyone does know why Montreal got a non-flag backdrop?
