1980-81 Topps Hockey Cards
The 1981-82 Topps Hockey set consists of 264 cards, that were issued in 2 series. Known as the "scratch-off' set, because the player's name is contained in a hockey puck, that is obscured a black disk, that could be removed with a coin. The only cards in the set that do not have the black scratch-off area, are the last three cards in the set, numbers 263, 264 #265, and the 2 checklists. The set contains cards of 7 players from USA 1980 Olympic Team that won the gold medal.
Note: 1981-82 O-Pee-Chee Hockey cards with the black scratch-off disk removed can receive no higher than a "Very Good - 3" grade from Dean's Cards.
