1977 cesar cedeno

the photo is cropped differently ever so slightly, but there is no missing the unstacked facsimile
autograph on cesar cedeno's 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
 now the o-pee-chee back:
with shirtless ballplayers.  at least they didn't try to represent florida by using ballplayers with walkers or pants hiked up to their chests.

and the topps back:
cedeno's streak of three straight seasons of 20 hr and 50 sb came to an end after the 1974 season, and he came close to 20/50 again in 1976 (18/58) but never quite got there again.  he did, however, steal a career high 61 bases (good for second behind omar moreno) in 1977 to go along with his 14 homers.  he stole 3 bases (including two in one inning) in a game against the cubs in may of 1977, and hit his first and only career lead off home run about a month later against the phillies.

voici à vous, 1977 cesar cedeno!
