I just got back some new cards for my two SGC Registry sets:

(1) 1937 O-Pee-Chee Baseball

I don't know if I will ever complete this entire set in SGC 88 or better, but I'm certainly going to try. I just added one of the toughest cards in the set -- #1 John Lewis. I thought this card had a realistic shot at an SGC 96, but I guess the centering wasn't quite good enough. I could really use both a Rogers Hornsby and a Hank Greenberg too. I had a chance to purchase a NM-MT Greenberg about 5 years ago, but the die-cut part was shifted too far to the left. If anyone can help me out with this set, I would really appreciate it.


(2) 1936-37 O-Pee-Chee Series D Hockey

I added 6 cards this evening including two Hall of Famers -- #122 Red Horner & #124 Busher Jackson. I have all of the other keys that are missing from the list and I can probably find most of the other minor stars and commons. The Morenz, however, is a different matter. I had a very strong PSA 8 that I sold several years ago -- sure wish I had it now. If anyone can locate this card for me in NM/MT (SGC 88) or better condition, please contact me. Thank you!

Note: for those who are interested, I should have some images posted very soon!

MW > Pretty impressive collection. I suppose it's a little harder than assembling '77's! Thanks for posting your set and images. Great stuff...

Thank you for the compliments, guys!

I don't know if I stand very much of a chance of completing the baseball set in SGC 88 or better, but I think the hockey set is a definite possibility. After that, I'll probably tackle something like the 1951-52 Parkhurst set. Also, as promised, I have just posted the 1936 O-Pee-Chee Series "D" hockey images.

Notes: some cool vintage hockey uniforms; card #113 (Art Weibe, defenseman for the Chicago Black Hawks) is somewhat reminiscent of the 1954 Topps hockey set with flying ice (fire?) coming off of the player's skates.

SGC has updated all of my cards and images for the 1936 and 1937 OPC baseball and hockey sets. With one more submission that I plan on sending off on Friday, I should have about 2/3 of the hockey set complete! (Hey, if VaYank gets to update everyone, then so do I )
