What's O-Pee Chee?
Hi, can someone please explain to me what the story is with O-Pee Chee? I looked it up but I still would like to know why they look exactly like Topps? I was going through my 1978 Topps set and realized that some of them were NOT Topps but O-Pee Chee instead. I pulled them and will probably list then in the trade forum.

Basically they were a company from Canada that Topps teamed up with to make cards. Hence why they are basically the same looking as the Topps cards. Oddly enough I think Upper Deck owns the naming rights to OPeeChee now since they released a few sets under that name in America a few years back.

Ok. Thanks for the reply, guys. I knew of the brand I just didn't understand why they made them look exactly like Topps. Seems kinda pointless to me.

Ah! Now that makes sense. Thanks so much for clearing it up for me. My 1978's are my original collection. When I completed the set years ago I must have bought some O Pee Chee without realizing. I went through the set recently and noticed it then. I think I will putt then for trade and replace them with Topps. Thanks again.
