1978 O-Pee-Chee Baseball Official Thread OPC

I thought I'd give a little love the the smallest OPC set. About 40% of this set is pretty easy in PSA 9 quality, but after that it becomes a little tricky.
Many of the cards are plagued by centering issues and/or the "tilt" that always seems to be a problem with OPC cards.

    If I remember correctly, the Carew and Brett are tough cards in 8 or 9. Nice cards. I really like this set.

    I'm so happy someone started this thread - it's my favorite OPC set! I've been following the '77 thread, but I'm not nearly as fond of that set.

    30 Don Gullett PSA 9
    84 DAN DRIESSEN PSA 8

    I'm down to 48 to complete the set. It's very slow going at this point.

  • Looking back at my raw cards, the Colborn and Cerone have legit shots at 9 or better, they are well centered. Montefusco and Bando are likely to get a OC, despite being otherwise flawless. The first 2 are definitely tilt free, the Montefusco looks tiltless to me, but the Bando has a slight tilt.
  • Big80sBig80s Posts: 2,758 ✭✭✭
    By the way - I'm not sure if any of you guys are in need of this card (I don't know why I didn't think to ask you all first) - but this auction of mine is just about to end.

  • figured milkandcheese1 might show up here.

    got a PM from him and cant reply to him for some reason...

    was interested in some of my cards; i put them aside for him.

    if any of you know him; give him a PM for me. all my other PM to folks are working fine; maybe he turned them off??

  • Hey Ichiro, email me at [email protected], I'm not receiving PMs for some reason. I'll be happy to take care of the cards you saved for me.
  • Found a few more raw 78s, including a 2nd Bando. Now I just need to sit down and start subbing. I just snagged a full set of 76s, and I've won 2 boxes+ of 79s (about 2/3, if that, are gradeable sadly). Plus the 100 or so 73s I've got backlogged as well. But I'll try to send in the 78s in the first sub.

    << <i>Where's a good place to purchase 78 opc packs or boxes and what is the going rate? >>



    I think Steve from BBCE had a box, but just checked and it is gone. The last box I bought was over a year ago, and I paid in the $250 range. Not sure who else has boxes/packs.
  • DavidPuddyDavidPuddy Posts: 3,479 ✭✭✭
    The last box I bought was from a board member here.

    I saw a lot of OPC boxes at some auction house (can't remember which one) last week. The lot had 78, 79, 82, and I think 83 opc boxes.

  • I broke up a box of 78 OPC's that I bought off Ebay. I still have 10-15 packs left out of the deal.

    I have not a clue what they are worth, I just know what I paid for the box.

    LMK if anyone wants to partake in this REAL UNOPENED WAX 1978 OPC's.

    I just had this sub pop. from the April special.
    I needed 24 cards to get to 90% and get a registry award. Well, I'm about a week late for the award, and somehow one of these graded "miscut" ?? So, after I add these to my set I'll still be at 89%.
    *Disclaimer on these* I just sent in the best of what I had raw of the cards that I still needed. I thought most of these would grade 8's, and I was correct. In no way did I think any of these cards would pull a 10 (Ok maybe I thought the Luzinski had a good chance at a 10). I also didn't think there were any 6's in the mix. I think some of these are the first subject graded.
    The Murray was a throw-in to get to the min of 25 cards. I'll take an 8.

    Maybe you missed a crease on the Dade. Overall, for OPC a nice submission. I noticed a few auctions for PSA 10's. I think justcollect is trying to set the market, and at a high level.
  • DavidPuddyDavidPuddy Posts: 3,479 ✭✭✭
    I've got another batch here that is REALLY nice, but they are all cards that I already have in 9/10. One of these $5 specials I'll send in about 20 or 30.

    I've been watching those 10's.
    The sale on them keeps getting bigger, and BIGGER.
    Unless they come down to about $30, I probably won't buy any.

  • << <i>GEM MINT 10 1978 O-PEE-CHEE 87 BILL CAMPBELL >>



    Any chance you have a clear scan of this card prior to subbing? I sent in a few minty fresh well centered 78 OPC's but have never subbed any before. Just curious if I may have wasted my time and money since they will basically be worthless in PSA 8. They did look better than a handful of 77 OPC's I subbed last year and got almost all 9's.
  • DavidPuddyDavidPuddy Posts: 3,479 ✭✭✭
    Bill,
    Yes, if you don't get stars in 9 or commons in 10 you will lose money subing these cards. If you have nice commons that you don't want to sub, I'll take them off your handsimage
    Here's a raw scan of the Campbell. Looks like it has a slight tilt?
    Here are some old scans of some of my 10 too.
