Over his 18-year career, he played the game of ice hockey hard and at a skill level possessed by only those gifted few that can be called legends. Richard became the first player in NHL history to score fifty markers in as many contests. In the 1957-58 season, Richard became the first NHLer to reach the 500-goal plateau. He was named to 14 consecutive NHL First/Second All-Star teams and participated in 13 consecutive NHL All-Star contests. He led the league in goal scoring five times, has netted 18 postseason game-winning goals, and was awarded the Hart Trophy in 1947. Richard was elected to Hockey's Hall of Fame in 1961. When he died in 2000, he was given a state funeral in Canada. Mounting remnants on verso (no show through). Fine condition.
