There’s Gold in them thar’ cards

Lets get this out of the way right from the beginning. This post is not going to be about goals for the year or an update as I pretty much update my totals on every post. My goals haven't changed either..still just one of every O-Pee-Chee card from every set, every sport or non sport.…

One more before the New Year

So I was off TCDB for a while as I was not really finding a lot of trading partners, but I decided to go back on last week and reactivate my traders. Well within 24hrs I had another trade proposed. And yesterday they arrived at my door. And here they are 3 cards from the…

A couple of Rookies

I've been pretty happy lately. My job is going well. My finances are starting to reflect the hard work I've put in to get out of debt an I've still managed to have a bit of a life at the same time. The pandemic has been hard on the collecting though. I really miss shows…

Finally, An O-Pee-Chee Basketball Card

Ok, there really aren't any true O-Pee-Chee basketball cards that were issued during the life of the company (that I am aware of). But..wait..there are the the 1997-98 & 1998-99 Topps sets that have O-Pee-Chee parallels that were inserted into packs sold north of the border. So...that counts. It does. Really. Well it counts for…

Now That Was The 80’s

Think back to the 80's if you can. What do you remember most? For me it was the music and the fashion. Nothing really combines that as well as these 1984 O-Pee-Chee - Michael Jackson Puzzle cards. The base set had only 33 cards and then there were an additional 33 puzzle cards. If you…

Calling Brutus The Barber

I've made the choice for the new addition to my Top 10 wanted list. It's a bit of a stretch this time as it's not a one off or the last card for the set. I've completed many O-Pee-Chee Sets and Inserts, plus Baseball sets and non-sport sets, but not any of the 3 O-Pee-Chee…

Darth Gets It Done

**Warning** There is a small The Mandalorian Spoiler at the bottom of this blog post. Well, the O-Pee-Chee Return of the Jedi set came out 37 years ago, but I can now say it is finally complete. I managed to trade for the last missing UNMARKED checklist. I had picked up the set but didn't…

Timmy’s Is Back

Guess who's back, back againTimmy's back, tell a friendGuess who's back, guess who's back?Guess who's back, guess who's back?Guess who's back, guess who's back?Guess who's back? If it's late fall in Canada it must be time for the new Tim Horton Hockey card offering. I succumbed. With most local opportunities to buy cards pretty scarce…

Baseball – Why Not?

I mean the Blue Jays have miraculously clinched a spot in this most weirdest of seasons so why not a quick post featuring my newest baseball pickups. Spoiler alert!! They are all O-Pee-Chee 😉 The 2009 O-Pee-Chee Baseball set (the last O-Pee-Chee banded set to date) used stadium photos for most of their team checklists.…
