1972-73 O-Pee-Chee Hockey Cards

By Patrick Mondout

O-Pee-Chee's set for 1972-73 featured both NHL and WHA (World Hockey League) cards, which in later years would be segregated into their own sets. This made this the largest hockey card set of the modern era (at the time) weighing in at 341 cards, with the somewhat harder-to-find WHA cards taking up slots 290-341.

Subsets include NHL Playoffs cards, award winners, all-stars, league leaders and - new to this year - In Action cards featuring action photography. The meeting between the Canadians and Soviets on the ice was a big deal in 1971 and O-Pee-Chee produced a set of "Team Canada" inserts for their wax packs to commemorate the occasion.

The card fronts, like the '71 Topps Baseball cards, featured full-bleed borders - though at least they weren't black. This still makes the set hard to collect in high grade.

This set features the first cards of the expansion Atlanta Flames and New York Islanders. Rookie cards include Don Lever, Craig Ramsey, Rick Kehoe, Jim Schoenfeld, Ron Low and Bobby Lalonde.
