Cardboard Creations: 84-85 OPC

After reading about the 1984-85 OPC set over at MY HOCKEY CARD OBSESSION, I decided to take a crack at creating a few 'updated' versions with Inkscape of some of my favorite current goaltenders from around the league. Here's what I came up with.

They were fairly easy to create and I think they came out pretty nice, so I've decided I want to make my own 30 card set featuring one goaltender from every team.

There are one or two slight differences from the originals though, but nothing very noticeable. I liked the way this set looked and I wanted to simply swap out the names and pictures, which is basically what I have done. The one thing I made sure of was matching the goaltenders' masks in both the action shots and close-ups. This may become another one of my side projects, but we'll see what happens.


  1. Nice looking cards. This is one of my favourite sets of all-time and I like the look of the ones you made! Do you go ahead and print them or do you just keep them digitally?

  2. Thanks. Right now I just keep them all digitally. I hope to be able to print them off in the future though.

  3. Cool....That is something I have wanted to do as well, but I am not sure how to do it so it looks "professional". Btw, your 79-80 ones look better than the ones UD created!
