Hockey Card of the Day #20

91-92 Topps Team Scoring Leaders

Topps was always second banana to O-Pee-Chee when it came to hockey cards, but I will give them credit for being a very close second banana with their 91-92 insert cards. O-Pee-Chee's Sharks & Russians inserts featured some rad cards of the Central Red Army, Dynamo Moscow, and Khimik teams, as well as players from the expansion San Jose Sharks, while Topps' team scoring leaders featured players people had heard of, as well as a nice design that includes a hockey stick. It's tough to pick a favourite of the two, but O-Pee-Chee is tops again because you can't beat the hammer and sickle on a simple two-colour back.
