Description

1973 O-Pee-Chee is a 660-card set produced and distributed for the Canadian market. As with previous and future OPC sets of the era, the design is identical to that of the Topps flagship -- with the exception of the backs being in both English and French and the words "PRINTED IN CANADA" on the back. The backs of each card have a lighter shade of yellow, as compared to the golden backs of Topps.

Unlike the 73 Topps set, which was issued for the final time in multiple series, the entire 73 OPC set was issued in one series; meaning, all 660 O-Pee-Chee cards were printed in equal quantities.

Distribution

36 packs per box, ten cards plus one stick of gum per pack (MSRP: C$0.10).
