1977 fred kendall

fred kendall gets one of the most dramatic variations in the 1977 o-pee-chee set, thanks to the trade made between the padres and the indians in december of 1976.  here is his 1977 o-pee-chee card:

now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
who wears short shorts?  the mets and phillies' wives, apparently.  vavavoom!

kendall wore the tools of ignorance for the indians in 102 games during the 1977 season.  he also made an appearance as their dh.  he hit 3 homers and drove in 39 runs, matching his rbi total from 1976.  he also hit the final triple of his career as a member of the tribe.  the following spring, kendall was sent to the bosox where he spent the 1978 season before returning to san diego in 1979.

voici à vous, 1977 fred kendall!
