1977 don sutton

there is slightly more of don sutton to see, along with a slightly relocated facsimile autograph, on his 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
sutton was only 14-8 for the dodgers in 1977 (breaking his string of five straight top-5 finishes in the cy young voting) but he did get to start the all-star game for the national league.  in fact, sutton's three innings of one-hit ball and four strikeouts earned him the win and the game's mvp award.  later in the year, sutton would make three postseason starts, earning the wins in game 2 of the nlcs against the phillies and in game 5 of the world series against the yankees, while having no decision after his start of game 1 of the fall classic.

voici à vous, 1977 don sutton!
