1984 O-Pee-Chee #232















Card Review: 9.5 This is the 2nd of four 1984 Topps variations to be featured here.  The O-Pee-Chee is my 2nd favorite.  The lighter colored card stock makes the back better looking than the Nestle and standard Topps issues.  I've always found the O-Pee-Chee variations to be a bit quirky.  I'm it's just a result of my associating Topps as the norm, but there's something kitchy about OPC.

Fun Facts: *If you look closely at the edges of this card, you'll notice they appear frayed.  This is common for O-Pee-Chee cards (hockey too), as they had notoriously dull blades at their factory, with this frayed appearance being the result.
Number of this card in my collection: 9
