O-Pee-Chee has never been much for the big hits. It's about building sets and nostalgia. 2014-15 O-Pee-Chee Hockey sticks with this theme, delivering the sport's biggest base set of the year and lots of old-school elements.

The 2014-15 O-Pee-Chee Hockey set has a total of 600 cards. This includes a 500-card base set and 100 Marquee Rookies and Legends short prints. Inserted 1:2 packs, short prints aren't a massive challenge. Evgeny Kuznetsov and Teuvo Teravainen are among the rookies in the set.

Every pack comes with one Retro parallel. There are also Rainbow Foil (1:4 packs) and Black Border (#/100) parallels.

Sticking with the throwback theme are new V Series A inserts. The square cards are inspired by pre-war hockey card designs and land two per hobby box.

Stickers return for another season. Relatively easy to find, they're inserted 1:3 packs.

Also returning in 2014-15 O-Pee-Chee Hockey are Team Logo Patch cards. Combining to fall four per case (1:96 hobby packs), this is the third and final installment of the program. As with past years, there are several tiers of rarity meaning some are tougher to find than others. The manufactured patches go back almost 100 years and feature a mix of regular, cartoon and commemorative logos.

Although autographs are not a major focus in the product, some are randomly inserted. Each hobby case averages three O-Pee-Chee Signatures and one Team Canada Signature card. Collectors can also find Sport Royalty Autographs and Buyback Autographs.

2014-15 O-Pee-Chee Hockey features a wrapper redemption program. When collectors gather the appropriate amount of hobby wrappers, they can exchange them for a pack of five Red parallels and a new Mini Tall Boy insert.

  1. Not really fair to ‘review’ them, since I don’t have them. But so far, I don’t really like the look of this season. I love the 12-13 set. I thought the art design of those was really classic and tasteful, in a sort of ‘post nuclear’, retro sort of way. However, these next two sets seem much more late 70′s… in a funky color, psychedelic way… which I’m really not into. But I’m just glad they do the sets, because they’re really creative and offer something very unique, compared to the other hordes of modern card sets. To me, these and the Score sets are the perfect combination.
