Collection of three Canadian Football League card sets (two complete sets and one near-complete set) issued by O-Pee-Chee in 1971 and 1972. Many stars of the day from the Canadian Football League including Joe Theismann highlight this collection of 385 cards. These CFL football cards have been somewhat overlooked by collectors and are not seen very often. 1) 1971 Complete Set (132): Condition is 48% Nr/Mt or better, 44% Ex to Ex-Mt, and 8% Vg to Vg-Ex. Keys: #13 Theismann (Ex) and 132 Checklist (Vg+). 2) 1971 Near-Complete Set (121/132): Condition is 10% Nr/Mt, 61% Ex to Ex-Mt, and 29% Vg to Vg-Ex (including a few lesser). Missing the following eleven cards for completion: #15, 22, 37, 38, 43, 60, 65 Henley, 66, 81, 91, and 101 Lancaster. Keys: #13 Theismann (Vg-Ex+) and 132 Checklist (pen marked, otherwise Ex). 3) 1972 Complete Set (132): Condition is 18% Nr/Mt (including a couple better), 52% Ex to Ex-Mt, and 30% Vg to Vg-Ex. Keys: #27 Theismann (100/0 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt) and 132 Checklist (erasure marks on front, 95/5 L/R, otherwise Vg-Ex).
