1979-80 O-Pee-Chee Hockey Cards

By Patrick Mondout

This set sort of marks a boundary between the Gordie Howe era and the Wayne Gretzky era as well. Gordie played far longer than anyone could have imagined, with the first "farewell to Gordie" card being prematurely issued in 1971! His last card as well as Bobby Hull's are featured in this set, but of course it is the frequently counterfeited Gretzky rookie that is the draw.

There are two reasons that having a non-white border was a bad idea. The first is that it tended to make off-centered cards stand out more. The second is that any wear along the borders will be obvious. Add in OPC's notorious quality control problems and the desirability of the Gretzky, and you have a very collectable set in high grade.

The backs have a cleverly conceived design featuring a skate (see below).
