1974 O-Pee-Chee Baseball Cards
The 1974 O-Pee-Chee baseball card set again consisted of 660 cards, with each measuring 2 ½” by 3 ½”. The front of the cards are identical to the 1974 Topps set. The backs of the 1974 O-Pee-Cards has the player biography in both French and English on a Yellow background, and the words “Printed in Canada”. Because of the later printing date, the 1974 OPC set has no “Washington, Nat’l League” variations. The key 1974 O-Pee-Chee Rookies are: #252 Dave Parker and #456 Dave Winfield.
Grading Note: It is common for the O-Pee-Chee cards to have centering issues and rough edges - which are more tolerated than with the Topps issues of the same period.
