1980-81 Topps Hockey Cards
The 1980-81 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, obscured a black disk, and could be removed with a coin. If these cards have the disk scratched off they can be graded no higher than a 3 - Very Good grade from Dean's Cards.
The only 1980-81 Topps Hockey cards 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. The set also has major centering issues.
