Set Type: Insert
Card dimensions: 2½” x 3½”
Additional Information: Inserted in packs of the second series of 2009 Upper Deck. The front of the cards previews the 2009 Upper Deck O-Pee-Chee set, while the backs replicate the backs of the 1977 Topps cards. While ostensibly the backs were supposed to replicate the 1977 O-Pee-Chee cards, unlike their namesakes, the text was not printed in both French and English. Upper Deck’s purchase of the O-Pee-Chee naming rights as a back-door attempt to reproduce Topps’s vintage designs ultimately led to a lawsuit that scuttled Upper Deck’s plans to issue O-Pee-Chee cards based on the 1971 and 1977 sets.
