Rewind: 2014-15 O-Pee-Chee Hockey

Just for fun 🙂

O-Pee-Chee Hockey cards crack me up!  Sure, they’re super low-frills, cheap, almost junky, and make me wonder, does anybody really buy this stuff?  Yet, they’re also appealing to hockey traditionalists, base collectors, and set builders — like me!  There’s something I like about sets that include “regular” players in addition to all the rookies and stars.  Even though we’re already up to 2016-17, I went the clearance route and got a nice deal on a couple of boxes of 2014-15 OPC (ok, plus a few packs) at my favorite local card shop, DJ’s Sportscards in Renton, WA.  Fun stuff!  Broke the boxes (256 cards each) plus some extra packs, and got 391/500 regular base cards (with 17 doubles), 25/54 rookies, 25/54 legends, 59 retro parallels, 17 rainbow parallels, 5 black parallels #’d/100, 22/100 stickers, 4/45 V Series A cards, and 1 auto.   I’ve included pictures of some of the cards I got and listed them below.  If you’re looking for rare autos, GU jerseys, low serial #’s, etc., with good resale or investment value, OPC is not for you, but if you’re a hockey enthusiast you’ll probably enjoy it!  I’m looking forward to completing a set of cards 1-500, with one regular or parallel card for each player.  (Have 412 players already, so this is very much feasible.  May buy a few more boxes or just do it through trading.) Contact me if you’d like to trade!
