1977 john candelaria

o-pee-chee took a different approach than topps when it came down to the facsimile autograph on his 1977 o-pee-chee card, as seen here:
here's the topps front:

and the topps back:
nice of o-pee-chee and topps to remind me of the no-no that the candy man spun against the dodgers in 1976.  1977 turned out to be candelaria's best season of his career.  he won 20 games for the only time, led the league in era, and was named to the all-star team for the first and only time, although he didn't appear in the game.  he also finished 5th in the cy young voting.

voici à vous, 1977 john candelaria!
