I don't t think they are the UK versions made in 1967 because they have White Backs.  I am just unsure what they are .

Information from the Trading Card museum website...

Ugly Stickers (1973-74)
Topps - 1973/1974 [tan backs]
Topps - 1976 [white backs]
The 1973/1974 series followed on the successful 1965 Ugly Stickers series. This time, 55 different sticker images were printed on 110 unnumbered stickers, with two variation names for each picture. Each name variation was found only with stickers with a single (" * ") or double (" ** ") star next to the Topps copyright.
Topps reissued the series in 1976, this time with white-back stickers and no puzzle pieces.

It doesn't mention anything about differences in sizes, however.

The are the same size as ab &c cards from across the pond.  I don't think that they are bootlegs. I have the 1976 series. They are the same as the 73 series but with white backs.  The 76 series is also standard size.
