2nd series OPC uncut sheet
« on: June 09, 2015, 11:09:15 AM »
I recently bought a bunch of stickers from Canada.  It turned out to be a 2nd series uncut sheet that a kid cut up into individual stickers.  One card, Poopsie, has the sheet code on it.  4-427-05-04-3.

Here is a Facebook exchange I had recently with Ernie de la Fuente:

Ernie de la Fuente:

Dont know if anyone is tracking this stuff any more but I found that  at least one version of OPC 2nd series original uncut sheet code is 4-427-05-04-3.  Doesn't that imply it was a 4th version of the sheet and it was from 1973?  I know there was some speculation at one point about OPC being 1974 and later.


Dave Schmidt:

Wow. Pretty sure this is unknown. Pretty confusing too, because the 4th series OPC sheet is uncoded. The code you describe seems like it should be the 4th re-setting of the domestic 2nd series sheet. The only thing I can conclude is that for these early OPC series, the final version of the domestic sheet was used to set up the OPC sheet, and was coded accordingly. That would certainly suggest the OPC came last. It may still have been released in 1974 in theory. At some point they must have stopped coding the OPC sheets.

are the stickers OPC copyright?
or are they standard topps, but the seller happens to be in Canada?

either way, that's a new sheet number, post removal of Run Tony

this is just a Gallery mistake.

For whatever reason both the sheet list on page 115 and the image say 'uncoded', but there are clearly digits in the color image in the book.

Greg's site has a better view, but still can't quite make out the numbers. Does Jeff still have the sheet?

so Series 2 OPC was sheet 4, series 3 was likely sheet 3 and 4 was likely sheet 4? All one higher than the last topps #?
