1971 O-PEE-CHEE COMPLETE BASEBALL SET. HIGH GRADE, ORIGINAL OWNER #1 - #752 SET. NO STAINS, GUM STAINS OR CREASES. The 1971 O-Pee-Chee Baseball Card Set consists of 752 cards, each measuring 2 ½ by 3 ½. The cards are similar to the 1971 Topps cards, but say Printed in Canada on the back.The backs of the 1971 OPC baseball cards are yellow, with the player info. In both French and English, up until card #523. 524 to 752 were printed in English only. The 1971 OPC set also swapped out cards #202 and #289 and added players from the Montreal Expos.
Just like the American Topps set, the 1971 O-Pee-Chee high number series begins at card #644 and also contains the same hard to find "Short Prints". Due to the poor production quality of the paper stock used to make the O-Pee-Chee cards with the many rough cut edges caused from the wire used to cut the cards. The grading on the 1971 O-Pee-Chee baseball set is much more liberal than with the 1971 Topps set.This set was meticulously assembled by one collector nearly 48 years ago. He would continue to upgrade individual cards as he could, always looking for the best available. I cherish this set above all collectibles and consider it an honor to have such a high grade example of this "HOLY GRAIL" of baseball sets & sports card sets. Hence, the aggressive pricing as I don't intend to sell it unless someone loves it more then I do as I know I would never see another set as good as this one ever again. Too be honest, we are basically showing the set as something we are proud to own as a collector and are not motivated to sell it. I took many months to carefully penny sleeve and top load each of the 752 individual cards. I then graded each card based on PSA grading descriptors on the PSA website and came up with the following graded checklist based on our own opinion and not professionally graded. I did not place the notation of MisCut cards on this list but do have them on our own excel sheet as the grades would obviously be higher on cards that we feel had a miscut such as card #100 - Pete Rose card.
