1977 ellis valentine

perhaps o-pee-chee felt the need to document ellis valentine's mustache, and that's why they used a different photo on his 1977 o-pee-chee card:
they also moved his facsimile auto lower.  here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
valentine took over as the regular right fielder for the expos in 1977.  he played in 127 games, hit 25 homers, drove in 76 runs and stole 13 bases.  he also had 2 triples (he would exactly duplicate all of those stats while playing in 151 games in 1978).  valentine was named to the all-star team in 1977 (he was 0 for 1 with a walk) in what turned out to be his only midsummer classic appearance.

voici à vous, ellis valentine!
