Joy Of A Completed (Insert) Set

Completing a set is great. Completing an insert set is even better. Completing an insert set from the 1970’s which includes variations is just pure joy.

The 1979-80 Topps Team Inserts is not listed under O-Pee-Chee but I remember them floating around north of the border. So I am including them on my master list/lifetime project to complete all O-Pee-Chee.

O-Pee-Chee seemed to be a year behind on inserts from the Topps hockey years (the glossy inserts of a few years before mirrored the Topps set of the year before that)

Very similar to the 1978-79 Topps Team Inserts it is very easy to get them confused. The best way to tell them apart is the copyright listed. If its 1979 it’s from 79-80, if its 1978 then from the year before (totes obvs eh!).

Note there are two variations of the Montreal Canadiens (one with Goalie and one with Score), as well the Penguins logo is an UER with the triangle upside down.
The back had an offer for a “personalized” card.

The insert set is complete.

Yay. That puts me at 52.72% of all O-Pee-Chee hockey cards issued during their existence (Pre Topps or Upper Deck Branding)
