Collecting the 1966 Topps Hockey Card Set – A Hockey Issue That Does More Than Just Skate By
It’s hard to believe but the 1966 Topps hockey set turned 50 this year. This classic, brown-bordered issue is not only challenging to find in high grade, it is also considered one of the most desirable hockey sets ever manufactured. This is due, in large part, to the design and the Bobby Orr rookie. In the next piece, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of this wonderful set. 

Being Mobile Friendly Changes Everything
The world is changing, seemingly by the minute these days. Technology is changing the way we work, the way we interact and even the way we play. In the following article, PSA’s Joe Orlando takes a look at one aspect of our ever-changing world and how it can continue to impact PSA, collectors and the hobby at large. 

Collecting the 1986 O-Pee-Chee Hockey Card Set – The Hobby Home of "Saint Patrick"
From a second year card of Mario Lemieux to a key Hall of Fame rookie in Patrick Roy, the 1986 O-Pee-Chee hockey set is an issue from the 1980s that collectors care about. This 264-card release is also considered one of the most eye-appealing sets of the post-1970 era. In the following article, we talk to the collectors who pursue this popular issue.
