1980 O-Pee-Chee Baseball Cards
The 1980 O-Pee-Chee set includes 374 cards, and was considered to be an abridgement of the 1980 Topps set. Not only are team changes denoted with an extra line on the front, but the cards also contain the text “Now with (new team name)”.
The 1980 OPC set differs from its American counterpart in that it contains a higher ratio of Canadian players, and features the player biography and statistics in both French and English on the reverse side of the card. The 1980 OPC set was produced in lower quantities than ever before, due to the company being on a rumored strike.
