1977 rollie fingers

o-pee-chee didn't mess with the mustache, but they did move rollie fingers' facsimile autograph on his 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
what a bad job of airbrushing.  now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
fingers had signed as a free agent in december of 1976 - plenty of time for topps to get him in his padres' gear.  with the friars, fingers appeared in a career high 78 games (the 4th straight season he had appeared in at least 70 games) and he pitched 132.1 innings.  he also won 8 games and saved 35 games for the 69-93 padres.  not a bad trick.

voici à vous, 1977 rollie lingers!
