1983 tony perez super veteran

tony perez was released by the red sox in late 1982 before he signed a free agent deal with the phillies.  here is his 1983 o-pee-chee super veteran card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
it's just a simple text variation, yet a nice touch by topps to keep the text to the red sox side of the card.  by 1983, perez was no longer an everyday player, so he didn't advance beyond the key milestones listed on the back of the card, finishing with less than 400 home runs, 3000 hits and 1750 rbi.  interestingly enough, his rankings in two of the categories are about the same, as today he is still 27th on the all-time rbi list, 54th on the all-time hit list, but has fallen to 61st in home runs.

voici à vous, 1983 tony perez super veteran!
