i wish all photo variations by way of cropping were as easy to spot as the one we get thanks to dave roberts' 1977 o-pee-chee card:
now the o-pee-chee back:
anyway, you may have guessed that my first impression of this dave roberts was not good, as topps was kind enough to let me know that he once retired 18 consecutive dodgers. his streak began when he entered the game in the second inning and got willie davis to ground into an inning ending double play. it continued until roberts walked maury wills with one out in the 8th.
roberts returned to the national league in 1977 when he had his contract purchased by the cubs near the end of july. the cubs used him as both a starter and a reliever, and to my relief, he didn't get into a game against the dodgers that year.
voici à vous, 1977 dave roberts!
