Topps, O-Pee-Chee & Coke Randy Jones Cards (1981)

Here are 3 RJ cards from the same season involving the same picture….yet all are different. The first one is the standard Topps issue (#458). The next is the O-Pee-Chee issue (#148). Like all the other O-Pee-Chee cards I’ve listed, the back is brighter & has the text in French & English. But because O-Pee-Chee was released AFTER the Topps cards, RJ had already been traded so they wrote “Now with Mets” on the front (on his right shoulder) and have the Mets cap on the front. Next up is a Topps Coke issue (#4). They used the same picture but airbrushed a Mets cap & jersey on him. It’s surprisingly pretty authentic looking for the time.
