WHA

The WHA was it's own separate league, absorbed by the NHL. It was described to me as similar to the hockey version of the ABA, and it turned out to be more apt than I originally knew, as it was founded by the same people who founded the ABA, using the same principals, with the same results! One difference, however, is the NHL does not recognize the history of the WHA whereas the NBA does recognize the ABA. In the WHA's lifespan O-Pee-Chee did produce several card sets, and I was given an example as a "Welcome to the sport" gift from a fellow hockey collector on the Trading Card Database.
