2015-16 O-PEE-CHEE Hobby Hockey Cards - Box/32 Packs

2015-16 O-PEE-CHEE Hobby Hockey Cards - Box/32 Packs


2015-16 O-Pee-Chee Hockey combines the old-school look and feel of years past with the players of today (and some old timers sprinkled in here and there). Opting for nostalgia over guaranteed hits, it has a big checklist, several inserts and plenty of throwback designs.

The base set returns as another 600-card behemoth. The main base set has 500 cards. Players here are all veterans. Marquee Rookie and Marquee Legends short prints return, landing every other pack. Because of the set's early release date before the regular season kicks off, it limits the number of rookies that are eligible for the product. However, there are some notable standouts including Malcolm Subban, Kevin Fiala and Jacob de la Rose.

The 2015-16 O-Pee-Chee Hockey base set has several familiar parallels. Retro comes with a new design and lands one per pack. Rainbow parallels return. Landing 1:4 packs, they're not tough but the large checklist makes building a set something of a challenge. There are also Black Border Rainbow parallels numbered to 100.

Basic inserts have, for the most part, been changed up. Instead of stickers, they take a glossy theme. All-Star Glossy inserts are inserted 1:8 packs. Tougher offshoots include All-Star Glossy Skills (1:100) and All-Star Glossy MVP (1:400). There is one insert that continues from last year. V Series B carries on from where the A inserts left off in 2014-15.

The manufactured patch possibilities have grown for 2015-16 O-Pee-Chee Hockey. Instead of just logos, some now include players. The product has a total of five different patches: Base Variations (1:147), Rookies and Legends Variations (1:900), Modern Brand Logos (1:540), Vintage Brand Logos (1:1,874) and Mascots (1:4,685). Patch cards combine to land four per 12-box case.

Although clearly not a focus in the product, 2015-16 O-Pee-Chee Hockey does have a few autographs. Hobby cases should have a pair of OPC Signatures and one OPC Team Canada Signature Autograph. Sports Royalty Autographs, which are signed on-card, are also randomly inserted.

Canadian collectors will have another chance to get exclusive cards through a wrapper redemption program. Each of the special packs comes with five exclusive Red parallels plus one of 42 different Mini Glossy inserts. These are a throwback to the separate O-Pee-Chee Glossy sets sold in the 1980s.
