View Full Version : OPC vs Topps

Posted By: <b>Bob C 2</b><p>I started collecting Topps cards as a kid in the '70s. In 1977 I bought an O-Pee-Chee set, partly because I was interested in the first year expansion Blue Jays and partly because many of the cards used different player photos than those used in the Topps equivalent. <br /><br />Different guides make references to these differences between Topps & OPC throughout the '70s & '80s. <br /><br />In the latest Goodwin auction catalog a 1971 OPC set is offered (lot #640) and the description notes that 14 cards use different player photos. Does anybody know which cards are different from their Topps counterparts and what the differences are? <br /><br />If anyone's interested in a comparison of the '77 set I can pull out my sets and post a list.<br /><br />Bob C

Posted By: <b>Andrew</b><p>I think Gil Hodges is one as it has a deceased notation. (I hope I'm thinking of the right player.)<br /><br />I sold a complete set last year (all stars graded), what was the hammer on the one in Goodwin?<br><br>"Take your life in your own hands and what happens?
