This is my favourite vintage design. I even make custom cards based on that design like the one in my avatar though I make the back look like it matches the front rather than the old cardboard back on those ones. O-Pee-Chee and Topps used to make the same sets back then though O-Pee-Chee would usually do the Cdn teams, their back would be billingual, and the picture quality was a bit better especially on the 80s ones where you could tell the difference. So maybe you can find the ones you were missing from O-Pee-Chee '71. Unfortunately 1971 or 72 and before is when cards start to get expensive so I don't have too many of them. Here's a custom I made, the front anyways:
