1977 cecil cooper

on the other side of the george scott trade made in late 1976, there was cecil cooper, who had his red sox attire transformed into brew crew gear on his 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
not quite as dramatic as the george scott card, but still nice.  it seems like it's been a long time since we've seen a team variation from the 1977 set.

now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
cooper had his best season to date for the brewers in 1977.  for the first time, he played almost exclusively at first base, and appeared in 160 games.  he hit an even .300 with 20 homers and 78 rbi.  each playing for their new clubs, both scott and cooper homered in a game at fenway on may 20, 1977.  cooper also had a walk-off grand slam against the mariners in june of '77.

voici à vous, 1977 cecil cooper!
