Calling all 1971 collectors...

I need a little help here. As most of you know, I live in Calgary. That's Canada. Which means O Pee Chee, not Topps. So I have a lot of these....
with these types of backs....
not these....
I have around 350 of these 1971 OPC cards... who in the heck can I trade with to try and get the rest??????
Also, why are all the backs like the Nolan Ryan above... except for one, which looks a lot like the Topps Palmer
If anyone has info on these, I'd love to hear it.... and if anyone knows a Canadian with a box of these in their attic, I'd like that info as well...

I wish that I could answer your question and help you out. But, I am unable to do either. I have no '71 OPC and I have never seen those backs before. But, I must say that those OPC backs look a little cooler than the Topps backs. That is just my opinion, though.

Wow those are awesome. I've never seen the '71 OPC backs before.

You know how I love '71s. I hope you find someone to get you the rest of them.

you don't happen to have a double of alan foster (#207), do you? i only have the al downing and duke sims opc cards from 71 and am looking for the foster.
i had a guy email me a couple of weeks ago looking for variation information (there are 14).
i'll keep an eye out here in minny - i sometimes see some opc that must have floated down from winnipeg.

Alan Foster of the Cleveland Indians? I don't have a double, but I do have him.(OPC version) If you want him, he's yours.

Being a fellow Canuck I know all too well the OPC Baseball product. I have a few dealers in town who might have some 70's. I'll have a look next time I see them.
