I remember when some price guides would list this Broten card (and the '84 Bellows card, for that matter) as his "rookie." Since Topps did not produce American sets in 1982-83 or 1983-84, this issue technically represents their first Topps cards, but they are not true rookies.
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.
Marc Bureau was a great defensive center, and his play in the 1991 playoffs was remarkable. I was always bothered that the North Stars didn't give him a longer look. He certainly proved them wrong with a long, solid NHL career.
