The 1966-67 Topps USA Test Hockey set is a tough version of the year’s regular set. Believed to have been distributed only in a small part of the United States, the woodgrain fronts are lighter than the more widely available 1966-67 Topps Hockey set. An even more noticeable difference between the two can be spotted on the back. Text for 1966-67 Topps USA Test Hockey cards is all English.

Regular 1966-67 Topps Hockey cards, which were distributed in Canada, have English and French copy.

In October, 2017, Lealands sold a NM-MT PSA 8 copy of the card for $41,430.

It’s important to note that a big part of the reason for these prices is because of a couple of factors. The first is that they’re not the more common 1966-67 Topps Bobby Orr Rookie Card. Condition is also a major reason. The PSA 9 copy in particular should be considered the best of the best.
