o-pee-chee pulled out one of their worst airbrushers to work on steve braun's 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
braun, who was the mariners' very first left fielder (he hit third in their inaugural game), appeared in a career high 139 games in 1977, and also set a career high with 80 walks. otherwise, his 1977 campaign had to be disappointing as he hit only .235 with 5 homers and 31 rbi. during the following season, he was traded to the royals and eventually made his way to saint louis where he won a ring in 1982.
voici à vous, 1977 steve braun!
