Revisiting The 1970 OPC VariationsAugust 8 2012 at 12:10 PM

I know we had a thread about these variations a few years ago but there is more psa data available now but I can't find much price history.
Some psa and vcp numbers.
#111- Brit Selby - 41 regular- 21 "No Trade"
Last vcp sale for a no trade 8 is back from 2007 at $1500
#175- Redmond- 56 regular- 33 "No Trade"
no trade 8's seem to sell for a bit over $100
#248- Orr Norris- 96 No Howe - 85 Howe
very similar pops, no seperate price info on vcp
#245 Laperriere- Perreault variation not noted in smr or vcp
So, my questions are:
Is the Selby really that much harder to find then the Redmond?
Do the pops on the Orr's sound right? Equal amount of each?
Is the Laperriere not noted anywhere because it is also an equal ratio?

Yes, the Selby is the toughest OPC card to find out of all OPC hockey cards ever made! It is the only noted
change in the first series.
It is a fact that PSA mislabel a bunch of Traded as No Trade and while many of the
other versions were not graded with this notation until more recently, its a real
mess that will hopefully one day be cleared up soon through resubmits.
I have even seen them grade the 1984 insert regular card as an instant winner card...baseball is still way ahead
of us in the variation department.
