O-Pee-Chee Hockey Cards

 O PEE CHEE hockey cards are the ones that i have collected the most over the years. When i was a kid they were all you could get in my area. I remember when i was a kid playing minor hockey, i couldn't waite to get my equipment off so i could get to the snack bar and buy a few packs of cards. Imagine 5 or 10 cents a pack, Lafleur, Dryden, Dionne rookies got them all back then.Believe it or not throwing cards was a popular game back then. You and a bunch of your buddies would stand twenty or thirty feet from a wall, put a card between two fingers a snap your wrist and let the card fly.Who ever got closest to the wall won all the cards. The value was not there then. To do this now you would be insane!  Wish i could have seen into the future, i would have stocked up on these boxes knowing the market value today i tell ya.

None are in mint condition, but nice to have just the same.
