o-pee-chee may not have leveled off the field upon which tom poquette stood, but they did remove his topps rookie cup and move his facsimilie autograph around. here is his 1977 o-pee-chee card:
he suffered through the royals' three consecutive defeats to the yankees in the alcs (1976, 1977, and 1978) but was not around in 1980 when they finally made it to the world series. by then he had been traded to the red sox for george scott straight up.
voici à vous, 1977 tom poquette!
