In 1984-85, O-Pee-Chee no longer held a monopoly on hockey cards, as Topps stepped in once again and offered a set that had similar cards but was smaller. However, this was the first year in a long time where the cards were quite similar. Topps had been trying some novelty approaches with their base cards before they shut down production for two years. Through all of that, OPC stayed true with their own cards, unaffected by those embellishments. 1984-85 O-Pee-Chee Hockey is also notable for its strong checklist, which includes big-name rookie cards.

The 1984-85 O-Pee-Chee Hockey front design features two pictures of each player on the front of the card, a main photo and a smaller photo inset inside a circle in the lower right. A colored stripe extending at an angle away from the inset contained the player's name, with his team name in a white stripe below that. His position is noted underneath the team name. The backs are vertically oriented and have text superimposed over a graphic hockey stick. A blue strip at the top contains the player's name, with his vital stats below it. The card number is shown inside a circle, followed by his year-by-year statistics and a biography in both English and French where space allows.

1984-85 O-Pee-Chee Hockey cards are arranged numerically by team, with each member of the team grouped in alphabetical order. Off-season trades are noted in a line of text on the front of some cards. Cards 207 through 218 feature All-Star players. Most cards between 352 and 372 feature scoring leaders from the previous season for each team. Cards 373 through 393 highlight award winners, highlights and record breakers. Three checklist cards end the set. Not included in the 1984-85 O-Pee-Chee Hockey base set is an Instant Winner card that was randomly inserted into packs that could be redeemed for a prize.

The key card in 1984-85 O-Pee-Chee Hockey the Steve Yzerman rookie card. In addition, there are a large number of rookies featuring Dave Andreychuk, Tom Barrasso, Chris Chelios, Doug Gilmour, Pat LaFontaine, Cam Neely, Dave Poulin and Pat Verbeek.
