One recent trend I've been very thankful for is the inclusion of Hartford Whalers cards in more and more modern-day sets. There have been at least a handful of new Whalers cards each year for the past two or three years, and in my opinion the sample size has been just right. There have been enough new cards to give me something fun to chase, but not so many that the chase becomes overwhelming. A few weeks ago I noticed in a post on Just A Bit Offside that Ron Francis is included as a Hartford Whaler in the Marquee Legends subset in 2012-13 O-Pee-Chee hockey. I'm still on the lookout for the card featured in that post, but I was able to snag the retro parallel of the same card, which I think looks even better than the base:
Have you picked up any of the new O-Pee-Chee yet? If so, are you going for the set or just grabbing some singles like I am?
