Set: 2008-09 O-Pee-Chee - 1979-80 Retro Blank Backs

Card: #86 Andrei Kostitsyn

“ The original design was better ” -Donald Catto

“ I have seen way too many mediocre hockey sets lately on RCOTD. I like the blue border and the picture but the blank back just seems lazy even if you call it Blank Backs. ” -davidhandberry

“ I like the retro throw back...still not sure how UD was able to use a Topps design, but I'm glad they did. Not a fan of the blank back version. I know they are fairly rare but I feel like I'm getting only half a card. I haven't actually gotten any yet but I'm sure it's just a matter of time before I do. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ This was the set that got me back into collecting after a 10-year absence. (Well, not the silly blank back version.) I've got the full 800-card set of the regular retro edition. ” -bevans

“ Great design. the back lacks style ” -parsley24

“ When less is more, the picture gets to say it all. I like it. ” -CollectingAfterDeath

“ One of my favourite card designs of all time, and yes I'm a baseball guy. It is too bad this is blank backed because the original backs were great too. This brings an interesting question to mind though...since the original design was also shared by Topps, which still exists, I wonder what the legal mumbo jumbo was to use it? Did Topps own the rights to baseball designs and O-Pee-Chee to hockey back in the day? ” -rmpaq5

“ The idea of a retro blank back is just mystifying...and not in a good way. ” -NJDevils
