and the topps back:
concepcion was in the midst of his all-star and gold glove domination in 1977, having been named to his 4th all-star team (third consecutive time as the starter) and having won his 4th (of 5) gold gloves at shortstop. concepcion gave way to larry bowa in 1978 and 1979 and bill russell in 1980 before reclaiming the starting spot for the national league in 1981 and 1982. while he was 0 for 1 with a walk in the 1977 midsummer classic, for his career, concepcion was a .250 hitter in the all-star game.

voici à vous, 1977 dave concepcion!
