1977 bill north

bill north's facsimile autograph moved up and to the left on his 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
as noted on the back of his cards, north stole more bases than anyone else in the big leagues in 1976, but he managed to swipe only 17 bases in 1977.  granted, he played in only 56 games that year, but he managed to get caught stealing 13 times.  that's not a good success ratio.  north would wind up stealing 30 bases in 1978, but 27 of those came as a dodger after he was traded to los angeles early in the season.

voici à vous, 1977 bill north!
