1972 O-Pee-Chee Baseball Cards
The 1972 O-Pee-Chee set consists of 525 cards, all of which are the standard size of 2 ½” by 3 ½”. The cards are similar to both the 1972 Topps set, and OPC cards of previous years. The back contains the player biography and statistics in both French and English. However, 1972 marked the year in which O-Pee-Chee added some new features to certain cards within the sets such as “Boyhood Photos” and “In Action” cards. Nonetheless, card no. 465 Gil Hodges, is the only card differing significantly from its corresponding Topps card, which notes his April of 1972 death.
