Much to tell you about and for you to consider in these encapsulated stacks of ever-popular O-Pee-Chee cards, dozens of which are in virtually the same condition as when they were pulled from packs during the 1968-69 season. As most hobbyists know, that doesn’t always mean perfect, with however four cards slabbed MINT 9; #s 6-Sanderson, 91-Van Impe, 198-Keon and 212-Worsley/Vachon Vezina Trophy. Another 33 are also MINT 9s but with (OC) qualifiers, including 72-Gilbert, 77-Ratelle, 142-Unger RC, 155-Mikita, 181-Plante, 201-Horton AS, 203-Howe AS and 213-Sanderson Calder, while 9s with (MC) qualifiers total 13 and include 1-Harvey. Four commons, (13, 65, 75, 192) are at NM-MT 8, with 15 slabbed NM-MT (OC)(140-Cheevers, 165-Richard), and another nine 8s are (MC)(64-Redmomd RC, 111-Hall), while 208-Esposito AS is one of four at NM-MT 8 (ST). Two dozen NM 7s include 56-Worsley, 122-Bower and 205-Giacomin AS, with 7-Esposito notable among 11 graded NM 7 (ST). The key Bobby Orr cards include #2 and 200-All-Star at EX 5, with 214-Norris Trophy at EX-MT 6. All cards are just back from PSA and are thus in clean, scratch-free holders, with details of the rest of this ’68-69 encapsulated bonanza available below.
Nine examples received marks of EX-MT 6, including 34-Sawchuk and 61-2nd Series Checklist, with four more 6s with (MC) qualifiers (67-Giacomin, 131-Ullman). Most notable among a stack of (27) EX 5 cards are 16-Hull, 121-1st Series Checklist, 164-Vachon, 166-Beliveau and 202-Mikita AS, with the Bernie Parent rookie card one of eight 5s with a (MC) qualifier. The remainder are (18) VG-EX 4s (204-Hull AS, 216-Provost Masterton), five VG 3s (31-Mahovlich, 211-Mikita Triple, 215-Hall Smythe), a couple of GOOD 2s and (21) which were returned not encapsulated. Thirteen with diamond cuts were labelled “Miscut” (including 123-Horton), while eight, including 29-Howe, did not meet size requirements. Plenty of possibilities await the astute new owner here.
