1977 O-Pee-Chee

So in all honesty, I didn't set out to collect this set.  I figured it'd be identical to the 1977 Topps Blue Jays team set, and I already have it.  But one day while searching Google for some info about the Blue Jays first major league game I stumbled across The Shlabotnik Report.  More specifically, I stumbled across a post briefly comparing some of the 1977 O-Pee-Chee Blue Jays cards to their 1977 Topps counterparts.

Fast forward a few short weeks, and I've gone from not collecting this set to collecting it all in PSA 8. In a very short time, I landed 17 of the 27 cards in the set.  I have since added a few more.  As I continue knocking off the remaining few, I'll be writing posts showing some of those cards and trying to rationalize why I chose a PSA graded set at all, let alone all 8s.  In the mean time, though, here is the last card I need to track down!

If you know where I might find it, please let me know.  Thanks!

  2. Hey Mike -- shoot me your address via the contact form bottom right of this site/page. I am not sure what '77 OPC doubles I have, but I'll look. I definitely have some of the other stuff on your wantlist, though, and will gladly package some stuff up to send your way.

    Cheers,

    Richard.
