1973-74 O-Pee-Chee Hockey Cards

By Patrick Mondout

Here is a set where you can really tell the difference from a glance between the Topps cards of 73-74 and the O-Pee-Chee cards. The former feature either blue or green borders while the latter feature red (cards 1-198) or green (199-264) borders. For the second straight year WHA and NHL cards were together in one set; the rival leagues would not have to compete space within the same O-Pee-Chee set ever again.

The 10¢ wax packs featured cardboard ring inserts (marketed as "push-out team crest rings") with NHL team logos (see below).  O-Pee-Chee (OPC) also released separate 10¢ wax packs with two fold-out paper posters of WHL stars that folded out to over 1 foot high by about 7.5 inches wide. They are not nearly as valuable as other Topps/OPC posters of the era, perhaps because they were released in their own packs and not just as inserts in regular card wax packs.

The fronts are remarkably clean for such a colorful set with a "deckle" edge separating the picture from the red or green border. As was often the case with OPC cards, the backs can be found in both cream and gray card stock. Rookie cards include Larry Robinson, Billy Smith, Dave Schultz, and Bill Barber.
