As mentioned in a previous post, in addition to a '77 O-Pee-Chee North Stars set, I also purchased a Cleveland Barons team set from the same year. There were only six future North Stars in that Barons set, but they're good ones!
I thought I got a great deal on four team sets from an eBay seller. I purchased the 1977-78 O-Pee-Chee North Stars team set, plus 1980-81 and 1984-85 O-Pee-Chee North Stars team sets and a 1977-78 O-Pee-Chee Cleveland Barons set. When they finally arrived, a couple weeks overdue, the '80-81 and '84-85 sets were bent, every card in each set creased at a 45 degree angle. Thankfully both '77-78 sets were unharmed, but it was quite an ordeal... waiting for weeks for the items to arrive, then having half of them damaged and having to send those back for a refund... anyway, as of today, my refund on the damaged sets has been processed and I can put this one behind me. I present to you the 1977-78 O-Pee-Chee North Stars team set!
If Mike Modano retires after this season, there's a chance that his final game will be against the Wild at the Xcel Center -- back where he started his illustrious career, in Minnesota. That'd be cool.
