Year: 1968-69

Set: Topps (Rate)

Card: #85 Ted Hampson

“ Vintage hockey + defunct team = pure awesome. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I don't know enough about this card but if that action photo in the background is of him then this is the best hockey front I have seen. Action with a headshot and clear writing. I can't think of anything better than this card. The back is lacking something. I love the facts and cartoon but it's lacking something to me. ” -davidhandberry

“ Sweet vintage card ! From an era when there were no C RW and LW position designations. 1 of about 47 total options for Ted Hampson whereas nowadays you get that of 1 player in 1 release. ” -baseballcardstoreca

“ Cartoons on the back are awesome. After that much is to be desired. Why are all the players secondary to the "action" behind them? It gets worse with other teams like the Bruins where the background is tinted yellow. Yuck. ” -rmpaq5

“ Totally awesome! ” -cjjt

“ Always seems lazy to me when there's a card with a player's new team on it but a main picture of the player in his old team's uniform. Organization eventually merged with the North Stars. ” -vanstryland

“ Cool Vintage Hockey (even though it predates my Capitals) I have always liked this set. Seems a bit ahead of its time though feels more like a mid 70s set rather than late 60s. ” -captkirk42

“ Wish I had access to hockey cards in the years prior to 1980. Love the backs! ” -NJDevils

“ Good looking vintage card. ” -parsley24

“ Not sure on this one. There is something awesome with its age and the actual helmetless posed photo of the player, but I am not sure if the whole set having a drawn in background that is so dominant. I am assuming Hampson is in there somewhere drawn in? I feel like I shouldn't like this. But I do. On another note, it is opening night of the season and this is the RCOTD to write about. Coincidence? ” -muskie027

Cool card overall. Love the cartoon on the back of the card too.
