1980 dock ellis

here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
just like ralph garr's 1980 cards, this one is a strange case. ellis actually joined the pirates very late in the 1979 season, and, for whatever reason (likely production schedules), topps left him as a member of the mets for their 1980 set. so, dock gets the full text and team variation from o-pee-chee.

to make things even stranger, he became a free agent after the 1979 season, and never played in the big leagues again.

voici à vous, 1980 dock ellis!
