in december of 1976, jeff burroughs, the number 1 pick in the 1969 draft and 1974 al mvp, was traded from the rangers to the braves for 5 players and cash. here's his 1977 o-pee-chee card, a seemingly straight forward team variation that, when more closely inspected, turns out to be more than that:
anyway, burroughs enjoyed his first season in the national league. he scored 91 runs, hit 41 home runs, had 114 rbi and even stole 4 bases. still, the braves stunk and lost 101 games that year. burroughs spent the next 3 seasons in atlanta before he was traded to the mariners during spring training in 1981.
voici à vous, 1977 jeff burroughs!
