Stupid Hockey Cards

In my 20 years of collecting, this may be the stupidest thing I have seen. This is what a 1980 -1981 Topps hockey card looks like.

 

This first question I would have is, who is on the card? To find out, one has to use a coin or fingernail to scratch off the top of the puck. So you really can’t have a mint condition card and know the name. This is how it looks afterward.

 

What was Topps thinking?

 

Bonus fact: This is a HOF rookie card.

    It really is ridiculous. So ridiculous that I’ve got to get a card from the set.

    It’s even worse for the team leader cards. The entire bottom third of the card is black. Thankfully, the OPC cards weren’t like that.
