1968 Topps Action All-Star Stickers
Checklist & Values


Another awesome Topps test issue !!!   Trying to catch the fancy of young collectors, Topps issued the "Baseball Action Stickers" set, also called "Action All-Stars Stickers". 1968 was huge year for Topps with test/oddball issues of Game cards, Player Posters, 3-D cards, Plaks, Discs and Punchouts.

Topps 1968 "Baseball Action Stickers" were 3-panel sticker strips with PACKED with STARS: Mantle, Mays, Clemente ... (16) different three-panel stickers were in set but only 12 are totally different. #13 thru #16 re-used panels from #1 thru #12.

Each strip had (3) panels perforated at joint with a large player image in center and smaller pictures of players top & bottom. Some stickers had facsimile autographs. Strip was folded along perfs and placed in packs.

Sold in 10 cent 1-sticker packs with 12 packs/box, sets could be made for $1.60. Today, more than a mid four figures is needed with just the Mantle panel going for around $2,000.

Collectors often collect just individual panels as complete strips are so scarce, fragile & EXPENSIVE. The single panels are quite scarce themselves - in 20+ years PSA has graded over 200 TOTAL with pop reports as low as 4 to 5 of most. Compare that to over thousand 1952 Topps Mickey Mantles !!!

Proof sheets have shown up. This sheet is missing the facsimile autographs.

History Of O-Pee-Chee

O-Pee-Chee (OPC) based in Ontario Canada, is mostly thought of as the Canadian version of Topps but it actually pre-dates Topps by many years.

In 1933, OPC issued their first sports card set, the V304 Hockey cards and is currently in the tens of thousands. Their first baseball set was issued in 1937. It was similar to the 1934 Goudeys and Batter-Ups and the top player was Joe Dimaggio.

O-Pee-Chee created baseball card sets similar to TOpps from 1965 into the 1990's. At first OPC sets were much smaller than Topps and included just the first few series. Fronts & backs were nearly identical but with a small "Printed in Canada" on the back and the card stock was slightly different.

Baseball being much less popular in Canada, OPC print runs of their early years were between 1% and 10% of Topps making them exceedingly scarce !!!

Starting in 1970, Canadian legislation demanded all items produced in Canada carry both French & English so OPC baseball cards became bilingual with both languages included.
Other OPC differences include:
1971, OPC even changed the back design to a much more interesting back and also offered 14 different card photos not in the Topps set.
1972 OPC included a card of Gil Hodges mentioning his death that was not a part of the Topps set.
1974 OPC did not include any "Washington Nationals" variations.
1977 the card format remained like Topps but almost 1/3 of the OPC set had different poses/images than Topps.
In late 1970's, OPC card fronts appeared similar to Topps but sometimes included traded information saying "Now with XXXX". They were able to do this as the OPC cards were printed much later into the season.
