1977 buddy bell

buddy bell gets the different crop and relocated facsimile autograph treatment on his 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
kurt bevacqua got a lot of mileage out of his bubble blowing prowess.  in addition to the 1976 topps card that features his exploits, he is also mentioned on a 1977-79 sportscaster card.  and now he gets a cartoon on the back of a 1977 card.  whenever i think of bevacqua i think of tommy lasorda and his famous rant.  but, back to buddy bell.  here's the topps back:
where we get to see bevacqua's elbow.  as for bell, he hit .292 as the tribe's third baseman in 1977.  his 64 rbi that year was a career high at that point, and the most that he would collect in a season as an indian.

voici à vous, 1977 buddy bell!
