1977 lee may

o-pee-chee took it upon themselves to move lee may's facsimile autograph out of the sky on his 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
may was coming off of a 1976 campaign in which he led the league in rbi (109) and finished 9th in the league mvp voting.  1977 was another good power year for the brother of the man who wore his birthday on his jersey (carlos may was born on may 17 and wore number 17) as he hit 27 home runs and drove in 99 while serving primarily as the orioles' first baseman.

may's final home run of the 1977 season was also the 300th of his career, and it came off of rick wise.  man, it seems like that guy gave up a lot of home runs.

voici à vous, 1977 lee may!
