Parallel Sets[edit]

Since 1965, the Canadian candy company O-Pee-Chee produced virtually identical, but smaller, sets identical to the Topps issue of the same year. The Canadian printed cards were printed on grey cardstock and featured French and English text on the reverse. The 1971 set featured yellow backs rather than green used by Topps, as well as some with a different design.
