The 1970-71 O-Pee-Chee set consists of 264 hockey cards. The nearly identically designed Topps set consists of half that at 132 cards and is missing the majorly important rookie cards of Bobby Clarke, Gilbert Perreault and Darryl Sittler.
The trio of Clarke, Perreault and Sittler are certainly quite valuable but the highlight of the 1970-71 set is the number 3 card of Bobby Orr. The only other cards as valuable are the checklists.
Another major feature of the O-Pee-Chee set, that is not included in the Topps set, are the many trophy cards of Bobby Orr including the Hart Trophy, Art Ross Trophy, Conn Smythe Trophy and Norris Trophy. Also not included in the Topps set is Orr’s All-Star card.
Terry Sawchuk is memorialized on card number 231 after passing away in the summer of 1970.
