74-75 OPC WHA Set Card by Card #2 - Bruce MacGregor

74-75 OPC WHA  #2 - Bruce MacGregor
After the first card in the set, OPC goes with the same pattern for all the other player cards in the set. The left side of the front features a team banner with a player making a play on the puck. Below the banner is the position and name of the player and the right side of the card features a large photo with a facsimile auto. All the photos in the set are studio shots.

The backside of the card is very well used. Personal vitals and card number on the upper left. Cartoon on the upper right and the middle of the back is loaded with bilingual text. At last on the bottom are last seasons stats and career totals. If the player was in the NHL last year (73-74) all the stats are NHL. If the player played in the WHA the previous year then their stats are entirely WHA (Gordie Howe being the exception).

Bruce MacGregor was a long-time NHL'er (15 seasons) before he jumped to the WHA. He played two seasons with the Oilers before retiring from hockey. Bruce was an assistant GM with the Oilers in the 80's winning 5 Cups with them.
