1977 ralph garr

ralph garr gets the slight photo variation (check the lettering on his jersey) and the almost as unnoticeable adjustment of his facsimile autograph on his 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
garr wasn't playing against tom seaver when he struck out 10 batters in a row (the mets' opponent that day was the padres), but he did fan 8 times against tom terrific over his career.

garr's 1977 season marked the first time since 1973 that he hit more home runs than triples, and it was the second year in a row that he hit an even .300.  garr was the white sox' opening day left fielder when he became the first man to face the toronto blue jays as a result of hitting leadoff when toronto played their inaugural game.  he opened the game with a walk and a stolen base, later scoring on a sacrifice fly.

voici à vous, 1977 ralph garr!
