1977 chris chambliss

in what may be the weakest variation o-pee-chee ever issued, the facsimilie autograph on chris chambliss' 1977 o-pee-chee card was rotated differently than on the topps counterpart.  see for yourself - here's his 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
it's actually a tad more difficult to read on the o-pee-chee card.  i wonder if they were trying to line it up to be more perpendicular to the pinstripes?  who knows.  like i said, it's a weak variation.  i like how topps/o-pee-chee noted chambliss' mid-season walk off home run against the red sox instead of his pennant clinching bomb in the 1976 alcs against the royals.  those new york topps boys really wanted to rub it in to the red sox fans, i guess.

voici à vous, 1977 chris chambliss!
