1976-77 O-Pee-Chee WHA Hockey Cards

1976-77 O-Pee-Chee WHA Hockey Cards

Product Details

User Rating:

For the third straight year, O-Pee-Chee featured a separate set of hockey cards showcasing players from the rival World Hockey Association. 1976-77 O-Pee-Chee WHA Hockey retains the 132-card size and introduced a new subset. Clearly, the league seemed to be doing well enough to mix it up a little bit.

Card fronts feature a player picture, with the border forming a frame that morphed into hockey-specific design features. A banner at the bottom left contains the player's name and team, while a hockey-stick shaped image at the bottom right has his position. The team logo is placed in the lower right corner.

1976-77 O-Pee-Chee WHA Hockey backs are oriented vertically, with most of the information placed into oval-shaped areas. The top oval contains a biography in English. Beneath that is an oval that shows the card number, with a brown bar extending across the card and giving the player's name. An oval below that has his vital stats along with the past year/lifetime statistic line. Finally, the last oval-shaped area has a French translation of the biography on the top.

Cards 1 through 6 feature the previous season's leaders in several categories, the only time a WHA set would include that.

1976-77 O-Pee-Chee WHA Hockey has one checklist card, as well as an All-Star subset that ran from cards 61 through 72. The All-Star cards had puzzle backs that formed a picture of either Gordie Howe or Bobby Hull. Surprisingly, there are no notable rookies.

I really like this WHA set. It has a pretty good selection of players and goalies. I like the info and stats on the back of the cards. I thought that the photography was also descent. The only complaint that I have is that the paper stock is lighter than previous issues and the cards tend to bend or fray more. Overall, a nice addition to any vintage collection. Got to like the goon players like Gallant, Sutherland, Jodzio, etc. that are included in the set!


Helpful but still missing a few things.
