Hmm, that would be something new to me as a sample item.

As all these late 80's Topps are readily available as uncut sheets, I would just guess that someone cut one into panels as the cards are worthless as singles but a panel might sell for more. I have seen it done many, many times.

Again, just a theory.

This doesn't explain them being non-sticker backs. It is likely a salesman sample. OPC probably printed the full non-adhesive sheets, chopped them down and sent them out with their sales people.

Plus, uncut sheets of 80s O-Pee-Chee (or Topps) stickers are not common at all, in fact, I can only recall seeing one severely beat 1989 sheet which suggests to me that it was a dumpster "find" and it had the adhesive sticker backs.

I will definitely say that uncut OPC is not as common but there is a seller on eBay that does sell these items by the ton. I am not sure where they get so much uncut OPC, but they are located in Canada. They actually have quite a bit of uncut but cut down stickers now. 1988 football, but these could have come from them.

It would not be surprising if they were salesman samples, but being non sticker makes me lean a smidge more to back door scrap sheets as test runs. Plain material is likely cheaper to use than decal sheet. But again I am just guessing.

As to the poster, maybe a message to this seller to ask if they sold this and if they have some history?
