jason thompson was stripped of his rookie cup by o-pee-chee in 1977.  don't believe me?  here is his 1977 o-pee-chee card:

and the topps back:
thompson lived up to the rookie cup hype in 1977, hitting 31 home runs with 105 rbi and a respectable .270 batting average.  although he had some more good years in detroit and california, thompson wouldn't hit 31 homers with over 100 rbi again until 1982 when he was with the pirates.

voici à vous, 1977 jason thompson!
