1977 del unser

del unser didn't change teams in 1977, but o-pee-chee decided to update his photo anyway.  here is his 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
kudos to topps for actually having a photo of unser in his expos' duds, as he had been traded to the expos by the mets during the 1976 season, and 1977 was his first full year with montreal.  unser wound up replicating his 1976 power numbers, hitting 12 homers and driving in 40 runs, but he did so in 33 fewer games.  he also raised his batting average by almost fifty points, hitting .273, while playing all three outfield positions as well as some first base for the first time since his rookie year of 1968.

voici à vous, 1977 del unser!
