1977 pete broberg

pete broberg's 1977 o-pee-chee card is a variation, but sadly o-pee-chee chose not to improve upon topps' poor airbrushing job.  instead, they slightly rotated his facsimilie autograph.  here is pete broberg's 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
broberg got a proper variation a couple of years later when he joined the dodgers during spring training.  he wound up not playing for the dodgers that year which is no surprise since he never pitched for the mariners either.  broberg was picked by seattle in the expansion draft held in november of 1976 and then in april of 1977, he was traded to the cubs without ever throwing a pitch for the mariners.

voici à vous, 1977 pete broberg!
