Set: 1980-81 O-Pee-Chee

Card: #92 Don Edwards


“ The OPC set that year was so much better than the Topps set. I like the green and yellow color scheme on the back, my two favorite colors. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Looks vaguely like the 1963-64 Topps hockey card design, except that design was actually kind of cool looking. I wonder why they put his name on a SweeTart. ” -revnorb

“ Wow. He looks so small compared to today's goalies. ” -olerud363

“ Oh how I wish today's cards had an ounce of character and charm such as this... ” -mkaz80

“ I love the old brown pads and helmet that looks like something from “The Mighty Ducks.” ” -IndyBean17

“ Goalies of the past must look at today's counterparts in their full body armor and just laugh. ” -rmpaq5

“ Nice set here, and OPC to boot. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ This is what makes vintage cards so appealing. Easy design, pushing the edges of graphic design at the time. ” -parsley24

“ Very cool Hockey card. Neo-Vintage. I had plenty of Topps cards from this year/design but not any OPC that I am aware of. I also don't recall getting any of the All-Star cards. ” -captkirk42

“ Cool goalie stick! ” -carthage44

“ I like how the French word for goalie is gardien. Kinda reminds me of the Simpsons episode. "English side ruined. Must use French instructions. Le Grille? What the hell could that mean?!?" ” -Brimose

“ Awesome! 1979-80 and 80-81 Topps/OPC are my fav vintage hockey sets. ” -wax_house

“ Love this card! Notice how much "thinner" the goalie was back then? Now they wear enough padding they look like sumo wrestlers. No way to get a puck by them. ” -NJDevils

“ Anyone who knows me know what to expect on this one! LET'S GO BUFFALO!!!!! Another beautiful Sabres card of the early 80's era. I love the older hockey cards. I really my parents would have bought me cards starting when I was born, I would have so many more of that late 70's early 80's era that I love. I am sure everyone think the era they collected was the best, but man, I love those mid-70's to about 1987 cards. One more thing on the card....that is what goalie equipment should look like. Hockey was so much better when goalies didn't look like giant bionic statues that should be competing in a Yokozuna tournament. ” -muskie027

“ I like the concept for the swoosh, but there shouldn't be any overlap of it onto the puck. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Great looking card! I want one!! ” -switzr1

“ Those pads are incredible. ” -royals

“ I love this set. They were some of the first cards I ever owned that were older than I am. Don't have this one though. ” -DanD

“ Love this set !!! Edwards was a pretty decent goalie. ” -uncaian

“ I'm a little confused by the inconsistent capitalization. On the front the English and French on the all-star comment are both capitalized, and both are all lowercase for the player's position. On the back, the English is capitalized for both items, but the French (french, in this case?) is lowercase for both. Is there some linguistic rationale, or just sloppiness? ” -kents_stuff
