1977 O-Pee-Chee Baseball Cards
The number of cards in the 1977 O-Pee-Chee Baseball Card Set was significantly smaller than those of recent years, and consisting of only 264 standard size cards. The 1977 OPC cards have horizontal backs, with player biographies and statistics written in both French and English.
The 1977 O-Pee-Chee Baseball Card Set was a separate production from the Topps set, and is heavily loaded with the number of players from the native Expos & Blue Jays, making their 1977 OPC team sets superior to the ones issued by their American cousin. The Canadian set was printed later than the Topps cards, giving OPC the opportunity to update the teams and airbrush the hats of the free agents, and traded players. With 85 unique cards, the 1977 O-Pee-Chee set makes a nice addition to any collection.
