Hockey Card Sets (By Season)
1968-69 Hockey 6 Team Card Set
- Esposito, Hull, Howe first ever to 100-point seasons
- Cup finals: Montreal sweeps St. Louis 2nd straight year,Boston (100 points), New York (91), Toronto (85), Oakland (69)
About time: The scoring inflation expected with expansion took place in the second year of a larger league with a longer schedule, now 76 games. Phil Esposito, the first to a record 100 points this season, topped the league with 126. Teammate Bobby Orr was the first defenseman ever to score 21 goals, as Boston finished a strong second (100 points) to Montreal (103 points and a record 46 wins). Too bizarre: Future HOF goalie Tony Esposito made his debut – with Montreal – and the first two goals he allowed were by brother Phil.
