o-pee-chee ditched the topps pose and facsimile autograph placement but not the specs when they created chuck hartenstein's 1977 o-pee-chee card:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
hartenstein did, in fact, pitch for the blue jays in 1977. he appeared in relief in 13 games, suffering two losses along the way. in the game in which he suffered his second loss of the season, hartenstein had the misfortune of allowing 4 home runs in 1.1 innings of work. two of those homers were hit back-to-back in the 7th inning, and the other two were hit back-to-back in the 8th. in fact, hartenstein was relieved after the fourth home run, but mike willis entered the game and promptly gave up a third consecutive home run. one out later, willis gave up another. in an interesting twist, mike willis will follow hartenstein on the blog tomorrow.
voici à vous, 1977 chuck hartenstein!
