1967 - still hard to tell the difference

for the third straight year, o-pee-chee played it straight.  their 1967 set, like 1965 and 1966, was identical to topps save for the copyright text on the back and the slightly brighter cardstock. and, like 1966, it paralleled the first 196 cards of the topps checklist, so no mays, clemente, yaz and many other stars.  it did include ron fairly though:
and here's the topps fairly front:
the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
too bad there was no french yet - it would have been nice to know how to say 'mr. clutch' in french.  the color change to the backs that o-pee-chee introduced in 1968 would be a great help in telling the sets apart.  no such luck here.
