1971-72 O-Pee-Chee Hockey Cards

By Patrick Mondout

O-Pee-Chee produced its forth straight set of NHL cards for the 1971-72 season. The 264 cards were again released in two 132 card series.

The 10¢ wax packs included 8 cards plus a story booklet (see "The Dale Tallon Story" below). The booklets could be found in English or French and were similar to the ones issued in 1970 Topps Baseball wax packs.

Subsets included award winners and All-Stars. There were also "special collector's cards" for Gordie Howe ("Mr. Hockey," see below) and Jean Beliveau ("Le Gros Bill").

The cards featured the player photograph within a large oval with an airbrushed, bright, monorcolor background. The team nickname dominated the top of the card while a team logo was place in the bottom-right. While the colors for the team nickname and the background of the oval did not vary within a team, the colors rarely had anything to do with the actual team colors; L.A. Kings cards did feature purple lettering and a yellow background, but the Boston Bruins were green and red!

The backs of the cards were green and black on grayish card stock with very small print for the statistics. Rookie cards include Ken Dryden, Guy Lafluer, Marcel Dionne, and Reggie Leach.
