I don't give vintage O-Pee-Chee the attention I should. O-Pee-Chee is one of the brands I don't have a Rangers checklist for and maybe I'll fix that one day. Thankfully, Jim from GCRL is looking out for me.
He sent over a package of cards while I was on vacation and one of the cards he included was this 1973 O.P.C. Texas Ranges team card. He included a note that said "Don't forget to respect the O-Pee-Chee." He's right of course.
He sent over a number of cards that were new to me. I don't recall ever seeing this 1993 Pacific Beisbol Amigos card which includes Julio Franco, Jose Canseco and Rafael Palmeiro.
If you never got to see Ivan Rodriguez gun down a runner in person, you missed out.
Reggie, Reggie, Reggie. You are not allowed to bowl over the catcher. At least not this year.
Oooh, purple! I like purple refractors.
Next to the vintage O-Pee-Chee, this is my favorite card of the package. This is my first 2012 Panini Cooperstown Field Generals card and I want them ALL! I know it's Panini, but I love this little set of catchers and need to track the rest of them down. There are 9 others so it shouldn't be that hard.
Jim, thanks for a great package and some good advice.
