1969 O-Pee-Chee Baseball Cards
While the 1969 O-Pee-Chee cards maintained the standard 2 ½” by 3 ½” size, the size of the 1969 OPC set increased to 218. The 1969 OPC set is nearly identical to the 1969 Topps set, aside from the words “Printed in Canada” on the bottom of the back, the presence of the OPC logo, and the magenta color of the reverse side. The front of the cards features a large photo of the player surrounded by thin black border, rounding all of the corners. Checklists for the 1969 O-Pee-Chee set include not only a list of names, but a small, circular portrait of a popular player featured in that series.
