1983-84 Topps Stickers (60 Die Cuts that do not exist)

I get emails constantly from collectors looking for Topps Gretzky stickers #7 (All-Time Leader) and #161 (All-Star) and the answer is they do not exist with a Topps backing. All of the 60 “die cut” stickers that were made in the O-Pee-Chee set were not made with a Topps backing. Stickers #5-14 and #141-190 were not made with a Topps backing, so those 60 stickers do not exist in “1983 Topps”. This was the biggest Topps set to date featuring 2 piece puzzles of at least one player from every NHL team. An O-Pee-Chee version was also made for this year and it featured the same front pictures as the Topps but with a different unique backing. (except the “Record Breakers” which only have English language on the front). This Topps version here had English language only on the backs of the stickers. When finding unopened wax from 1983, it is not uncommon for the glue that held the packages to be coming undone. Topps distributed these stickers out of Westbury New York in the US. There are 270 actual Topps branded physical stickers in this set. The other 60 stickers in this set are O-Pee-Chee branded stickers that were used instead of making actual Topps branded stickers for the die-cuts. If you are building a set of these stickers the O-Pee-Chee stickers will be included to make a complete set.
