1982 george foster all-star

as mentioned twice previously, george foster was traded by the reds to the mets in february of 1982.  here is his 1982 o-pee-chee all-star card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
note that o-pee-chee didn't even bother to move foster's autograph despite the conflict with their logo.  that never would have happened in 1977!  the 1981 all-star game was the final midsummer classic of foster's career.  he went 0 for 2 as the national league's starting left fielder, grounding out against jack morris and len barker before being replaced by dusty baker.

voici à vous, 1982 george foster all-star!
