1983 tony perez

tony perez signed as a free agent with the phillies in january of 1983.  here is his 1983 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
the phillies re-assembled the big red machine in 1983, adding perez and joe morgan to their roster, reuniting them with charlie hustle.  it worked, too, as the phillies returned to the world series, but things turned out differently than they did in 1980 as the phils lost.  for his part, perez was just 2 for 10 in the fall classic.  in the regular season, the 41 year old posted his lowest batting average and slugging percentage since his debut 1964 season.

voici à vous, 1983 tony perez!
