I haven't heard anything about opc gray backs but since nobody else has responded I will share that opc typically used a white card stock similar to what factory topps traded cards used. Topps used the gray card stock for their base sets. My guess is that if opc gray backs do exist it would have been some kind of rare mix up during the printing process and the numbers on such a variation would probably be extremely low.

Where and what have you heard on the topic? If you read an article can you share a link?

I'm assuming he's talking about 1981. I don't know much about them either.

Default 1981 opc gray back

Thank you for responding. I am talking about the 1981 OPC gray back.
I recently acquired one and didn't have a feel for this card other then
they are in the registry.
I now know I am a pretty lucky LADY to have acquired it

I looked through some 81's today and the grey backs accounted for about 25% of what I seen.

That's a good ratio, but if you actually bought them in '81 you probably got them all at once. They are much tougher than the white backs. Years ago, a Canadian dealer told me that when OPC went to do a second printing, the white stock wasn't available and that the second printing was much smaller than the initial run. For what that's worth....

Interesting, I must say I was unaware of the 1981 card stock variations. I hadn't researched OPC's very much at all. Any leads on where i can pick some 81 gray backs up? Are the 54 "Canadian" gray backs considered OPC?

you can also check COMC.com, they are not segregated, but at least you can look at card backs. If you are just looking for Dodgers, I believe you can narrow your sort by "dodgers" as well.
