1977 bucky dent

the white sox traded shortstop bucky dent to the yankees at the start of the 1977 season.  here's his 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
in a deal the red sox would learn to loathe, dent was acquired for oscar gamble and lamarr hoyt.  he hit only .239 in his tenure in new york which spanned 5 and a half seasons, but came up big in that one game playoff against the bosox.  i, however, choose to despise him for his 7 rbi performance in the 1978 world series.  bucky freakin' dent, indeed.

voici à vous, 1977 bucky dent!
