1977 glenn abbott

the variations (photo and autograph placement) are pretty slight on this, glenn abbott's 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
compare the light standard and the cloud above his hat, as well as where the 'g' starts.  i know, it's weird what o-pee-chee did in '77.

now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
abbott was selected by the mariners in the expansion draft, and became the second relief pitcher in franchise history when he relieved enrique romo in seattle's second game.  he threw 1.1 scoreless innings in that game, and was then put into the starting rotation.  he wound up making 34 starts and appeared in a total of 36 games for the m's in 1977, and was the winningest pitcher on the club, achieving a career high 12 victories.

voici à vous, 1977 glenn abbott!
