Some Old Time Puck and Roll

So we have 3 packs to open here. 81/82 Topps Hockey, 83/84 O-Pee-Chee Hockey and 84/85 Topps. Let's begin with the 81/82 Topps.

Here we go:

Colorado Rockies Team Leaders
Eric Vail Flames
Rick Kehoe Penguins
Bob Gainey Canadiens
Edmonton Oilers Team Leaders Wayne Gretzky (Who else?)
Peter Stastny Nordiques
Toronto Maple Leafs Team Leaders

Super Action Card Bernie Federko (And boy does Bernie look like he's enjoying some super action)

Steve Tambelini Rockies
Greg Smith North Stars
Blair Chapman Blues
Dino Ciccarelli North Stars
Brian Sutter Blues

Not too bad...Stastny, Gretzky and Gainey can go into the old PC.

Let's continue with 83/84 O-Pee-Chee

Lanny McDonald Calgary Flames
Brian Trottier Islanders (Boo Hiss)
NY Rangers Checklist

Dino Ciccarelli North Stars (Dino must want something, he's following me!)

Mario Marois Nordiques
Mike Bossy Lady Byng Trophy
Borje Salming Maple Leafs
Greg Smith Red Wings
Doug Risebrough Flames
Mark Tardif Nordiques
Ray Borque Bruins

Borque and a heart can't take anymore.

Since the first 2 breaks went sooo well, I'll push my luck and open 1984/85 Topps

Funny, this pack isn't wax. Its a tear open plastic-ish type of material. Well as fascinating as this may be, we have cards to look at people...

Joel Quenville Whalers
Eddie Johnstone Red Wings
1st Team All-Star Mike Bossy
Tim Kerr Flyers
Al MacAdam North Stars
Terry Rustkowski Kings
1st Team All-Star Ray Borque
Rob Ramage Blues

Rick Middleton Bruins (I still have nightmares over the Hodge for Middleton trade!)

Guy Lafleur Canadiens (Father of the Year)
Larry Robinson Canadiens
Mike Bossy Isles (This is getting tedious..)
Ed Beers Flames

Larry Robinson Canadiens (Nothing like that superb mid-80's Topps collation)

Ken Morrow Isles

Ah, the 80's NHL...bushy mustaches and uniforms that look like pajamas.

I hope you all enjoyed the break as much as I did.
