1977-78 O-Pee-Chee Hockey Cards

By Patrick Mondout

O-Pee-Chee's (OPC) NHL set for 1977-78 once again weighed in at 396 cards - triple the size of Topps' basketball card sets of the same time. Though rarely complains about sets of this era being too large (though I make my case here), cards 322-339 simply have the team logo on them with team records on the back.

OPC raised the price of a pack 50% to 15¢. To appeal to the frugal, they included 12 cards in pack (instead of 8) and brought back inserts for the first time since 1973, with 22 attractive glossies shown below (see Guy Lafleur below).

This is an attractive set with an abundance of action photos, but it is not as popular as it might be with a weak crop of rookies. That problem would take care of itself in the coming years with Mike Bossy and Wayne Gretzky making their debuts.
