This is an impressive offering of the popular Canadian entry into Topps baseball cards each year during that period, with the 1977 version representing a scaling back to 264 cards after several years of much larger sets that either matched or approximated their U.S. counterparts, with a greater emphasis on the two Canadian teams. It’s difficult to imagine finding these cards in a superior condition than this, essentially Near-Mint to Near-Mint to Mint, with perhaps only a handful of cards falling to Ex-Mt. These are seemingly uncirculated cards, with blazing color and gloss and the super-clean distinctive backs that were always a hallmark of the charming, bilingual effort. As was often the case with O-Pee-Chee, centering could be an issue, with more than half of this offering having the kind of centering that might prompt an upgrade, though not all of those would be severe enough to dictate an off-center designation. The key Hall of Famers – Stargell, Yastrzemski, Carter, Brock, Ryan, Palmer, Carlton, Bench, Carew, Jackson, Yount, Seaver, Morgan and Rose – and the rest of the group conform to the overall condition range, jostled only by the centering question mentioned above.
