Now that the NHL season is over, Sal (@PuckJunk) and Tim (@TheRealDFG) talk about one of their favorite sets of hockey cards: 1971-72 Topps (and O-Pee-Chee). They also touch on the 2001-02 Topps Retro Hockey set, which used the 1971-72 design. Runtime is a (relatively short) 22 minutes. Pictures of the cards they discuss after the jump.

 Here are a few examples of 1971-72 Topps Hockey cards.

Briefly discussed in Podcast #7 is the 2014 Topps Archives Baseball card set, which also borrowed the ’71-72 design. You can see examples of those here.
