1977 steve swisher

nick swisher's dad, steve, gets the autograph placement variation on his 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
it also looks like o-pee-chee did not approve of the baby blue away uniforms that the cubbies debuted in 1976.  it's such an obvious alteration that i'll go ahead and give it the photo variation tag as a result.

now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
swish was coming off of his only all-star season, but hit only .190 in 74 games in 1977.  it turned out to be his final year with the cubs as he was traded to the cardinals after the season ended.

voici à vous, 1977 steve swisher!

  1. Just another Post Randy Hundley, mediocre Cubs catcher.
