1978 ron fairly

the first time ron fairly was traded (from the dodgers to the expos), he was traded for manny mota and maury wills.  the last time he was traded (from the blue jays to the angels), he was traded for butch alberts and pat kelly.  amazing what eight and a half years will do to your trade value.  anyway, here's fairly's 1978 o-pee-chee card letting us know that he had been traded, to 'california' no less.
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
i like how o-pee-chee chose not to recognize fairly as a dh on the back, even though they left the 'dh-1b' text in the ball on the front.  remember, the 1978 set was only 242 cards with a different checklist, so that's why the numbers don't match.

voici à vous, 1978 ron fairly!
