Default Vintage Hockey Collection

I recently purchased around 500 Topps Hockey cards ranging from 1968 to 1975. I've done a little comparing with COMC to see if any have value and there are some pretty good cards. Hull, Orr, Dryden, LeFleur, etc. I don't really collect Hockey and have no idea about the vintage market.
Does vintage Hockey have a following? Would it be worth scanning a bunch for the Blowout Marketplace or something? I feel like I only see hockey collectors go after prospects and so on and didn't know if I should try to focus more on the set collector for them or what.

I think there are still people putting vintage sets together. I am working on a Topps 71-72 set myself. It's not going to be as popular as baseball obviously, but there is still a market. I wouldn't spend too much time scanning unless requested. Maybe just list them and take a few pictures? That's my 2 cents.

Thanks for your reply, I am on vacation but will drop you a line on what cards from 70-71 I have which might help you out. Its crazy that for the price someone will pay for one box of "The Cup" you could put a decade worth of sets together.

i, too, would be interested in any rangers you may have, and various HOF'ers too, if the price were reasonable. i don't have much vintage hockey in my collection, but would love to get into it some more.
