A lot of my Black Friday pick ups for Robin concentrated on more modern cards, but I did manage to add a few more vintage cards to the collection. While I've had a complete Topps run of Robin's playing days I've been slow to pick up his O-Pee-Chee counterparts.
I was able to add a couple O-Pee-Chee cards I needed the first being this 1978 example.
While the photo and layout are exactly the same for both Topps and O-Pee-Chee, the card numbering is different and the card clearly has both French and English on the back and the O-Pee-Chee copyright.
I also think O-Pee-Chee used slightly better card stock. O-Pee-Chee cards bring a little bit of a premium as they had a smaller print run and were only released in Canada.
Nice to have this one marked off the checklist.
