1977 darrel chaney

braves shortstop darrel chaney seems pleased that o-pee-chee moved his facsimile autograph around, even though they chose an odd place to move it to.  here is his 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
at least topps had the common sense to keep most of his first name out of the spot with the dark background.

now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
if you had asked me, i would have said that darrel chaney was a catcher.  not sure why i thought that.  anyway, chaney saw his playing time reduced in 1977 and he hit only .201 in 74 games.  he did establish a career high with 3 home runs, however, including a pinch hit blast against the reds.  speaking of the reds, i find it interesting that chaney debuted for cincinnati in a game against the braves back in april of 1969, and then made his final appearance as a big leaguer for the braves against the reds in september of 1979.

voici à vous, 1977 darrel chaney!
