Box Bottoms

Rate this Entry
For their 1985-86 sets O-Pee-Chee and Topps started putting cards on the bottom of their boxes in 4 card panels. These cards features different art but looked very similar to the regular issue cards. This trend continued until the 1990-91 sets. Upper Deck followed suit with their 1991-92 box bottoms being 1 large card but shortly after that box bottom cards disappeared. In recent years Upper Deck has revived that trend on their new O-Pee-Chee product but this post will focus on the older stuff.

1985-86 O-Pee-Chee Box Bottoms - This set really started things off right featuring the rookie Mario Lemieux. Cards were same design as the regular set but had yellow borders instead of white.
