The 1967 Topps Hockey Card Set – Orr, Howe and Hull Aren't Enough, You Have to Find the Duff

1967 Topps Hockey Card SetThe 1967 Topps hockey card set is one that is often overshadowed by other sets released during the same decade, like the 1964 Tall Boys and 1966 brown-bordered Topps issues, but it does offer plenty of appeal. This 132-card set is anchored by a few second-year cards featuring Bobby Orr, one of the icons of the ice. One year after issuing his official rookie card, Topps placed Orr's image on three different key cards and all three represent the three most valuable cards in the set. These colorful cards are highly collectible, and within the set, there are a few challenges that may surprise hobbyists. In the following piece, we dig further into a set that is much more than Orr.

The 1969 O-Pee-Chee Hockey Card Set – A Tough Vintage Issue for Hockey Collectors to "Check" Off Their "List"

1969 O-Pee-Chee Hockey Card SetThe 1969 O-Pee-Chee hockey card set, like the 1967 Topps issue, often doesn't receive a large share of the limelight due to other classic releases that dominated the time period. This rather large 231-card set contains some terrific cards, including rookies of Hall of Fame players like Serge Savard and Tony Esposito. The issue also includes some specialty cards in the high-number series, such as All-Star cards, trophy winners and even a tribute to Gordie Howe. That said, the card that seems to pose the biggest challenge appears to be the #132 checklist card, which was the last card from the first series. In the following article, we interview the collectors who continue to chase this 45-year old issue.

The Steelers - The Number One Current Finest Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl Master Ticket Set
The Pittsburgh Steelers are one of the most storied franchises in sports. The team's history of winning has vaulted them to the top of the gridiron food chain. With six Super Bowl titles and eight AFC Championships under their belt, few football franchises can compete. In fact, the Steelers have played in 15 conference championship games to boot. You could argue, from a franchise perspective, they are the New York Yankees of football. This set, which is comprised of every Super Bowl ticket color variation from all eight appearances in the big game, contains 24 different tickets and is 100% complete. From Terry Bradshaw to Franco Harris to Ben Roethlisberger, there have been many football greats who have donned the black and gold, and the recipient for the 2013 Best Ticket Set of the Year award is the first set to reach 100% completion on the registry. Click here for a glimpse of this set.
