1984-85 Topps #70 Don Beaupre
I just picked up a 1984-85 Topps North Stars team set today. It's smaller than the O-Pee-Chee issue, but I badly needed replacements for some of my very first hockey cards. Virtually all of my North Stars from this set had a thumbtack hole through them. The set I received has nice, sharp corners, though there is spotty printing on quite a few of them. I guess I don't know if that was an issue that plagued this set (the first Topps set in three years) or not.
