1977 sixto lezcano

sixto lezcano gets the slight photo cropping and facsimile autograph adjustment variations on his 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
i just now realized that sixto's real name was sixto.  i always thought it was a nickname.  anyway, he hit 21 homers for the brew crew in 1977 while driving in only 49 runs.  those are worse than greg brock numbers! brock is the guy i usually think of when home run totals are relatively close to rbi totals, probably thanks to his 14 home run/34 rbi season in 1984.  talk about a sophomore slump.  anyway, back to sixto - two of lezcano's homers accounted for both runs in a 2-1 win over don gullett and the yankees early in the season in the first multi-homer game of his career.  lezcano would wind up getting traded by the brewers after the 1980 season which was great for me because it kick started a number of team and text variations.

voici à vous, 1977 sixto lezcano!
