1977 thurman munson

i don't know why o-pee-chee was against the all star banners, but munson is victimized nonetheless.  here's his 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
as a result, we see more of his chin. as you might infer from the topps card, munson was selected to start the 1976 all star game, which was played in philadelphia at the vet. in the game, he went 0 for 2 grounding out against randy jones and popping out to second against tom seaver before being replaced behind the dish by carlton fisk.

voici à vous, 1977 thurman munson!
