One absolutely interesting card to see - but it's at the end, so hang tight...
With only 5% of the base set, should be all new cards to me, but let's see.
All the base are new to me. Not a bad bunch of cards, and I find the design very typical O Pee Chee, which isn't a bad thing.
Interested to see what the last two cards are?
First is rather usual...
A nice retro Oshie. I like the retro design and Oshie is a pretty soldi card to get. The nice blue inked back is great too.
This has to be the most purposely useless card I have ever seen.
I generally don't "get" blank backs. It is like getting only half a card. Now, when you are talking about a checklist where half the checklist is on the "back" and instead, it is blank....what is the point of the card? Okay, cool because it is "unique" or "rare", but other than collectible, the card fails at being the card it is supposed to be.
Any other card, okay, not the end of the world, but a checklist...not so much.
Unless the blank back is a special "Box bottom" I don't see the purpose of blank backs either. Waste of cardboard (some would say that of the entire hobby but who are we to say?) Apparently the blank backs are an entire parallel set, except the list from the link has 600 cards and the last "checklist" card is for numbers 501 - 550.ReplyDelete
Oops forgot to post the checklist link from TradingCardDataBase: https://www.tradingcarddb.com/Checklist.cfm/sid/84038/2013-14-O-Pee-Chee---Retro-Blank-BacksDelete
Agreed - I can accept blank backs for bottom of box type cards, but to purposely print half a card and call it a parallel...just doesn't make a ton of sense to me.Delete
