The 1977-78 Topps/OPC Hockey set ranks up there in favorite designs for me with the 1977 Topps/OPC Baseball set.
Making way for new blood such as Bernie Federko who would be with the team for a full year after a partial one the year before, this was also true for Brian Sutter.
Chuck Lefley would leave the Blues before the season and play in Finland.
As with other OPC/Topps Hockey sets there were differences in players depicted with OPC having far more players than tops.
These players only had OPC cards
Doug Palazzari RC
Rick Bourbonnais RC, UER
These players had both Topps and OPC
Dave Williams / Dennis Polonich / Bob Gassoff LL
Regarding the cards- they are clean to say the least. The team logo and name, player name and position along the bottom with a player action shot framed in white. Nice, nice design.
Topps 8 of 9-only missing the League Leader with Gassoff and OPC 17 of 25.
