Description

1981 O-Pee-Chee is a 374-card abridgement of the 1981 Topps set, made for the Canadian market. In a practice begun in 1977 and continued to 1988, the set features a higher ratio of cards of players from the two Canadian teams. Biography, major league statistics, and career highlights in both French and English also appear. In cases where a player changed teams or was traded before press time, a small line of print on the obverse makes note of the change.

Double-printed (DP) cards are also noted below.

The card backs are typically found printed on white card stock. There is, however, a "variation" set printed on gray card stock.

Each eight-card pack includes one of 24 posters of Expos and Blue Jays players.

Notable Rookie Cards include Harold Baines, Kirk Gibson and Tim Raines.

Distribution

48 packs per box, eight cards plus one poster per pack. (MSRP: C$0.25)
