1975 O-Pee-Chee Baseball Cards
The 660 cards within the 1975 O-Pee-Chee set were the first of all the OPC cards to feature a two-color frame surrounding the color picture of the player. No longer were the cards printed with a single, subdued color framing the photo. The 1975 OPC set was very similar to the Topps set, aside from the bilingual reverse side of the OPC cards, which listed the player biography and statistics in French as well as English. The first 6 cards of the 1975 OPC set feature players who broke records or reached milestones in the prior season. Additionally, cards 189-212 illustrate both National League and American League MVP’s between the years of 1951 and 1974.
