1977 manny trillo

manny trillo is a wee bit lower, and his facsimile autograph is more noticeably shifted, in this, his 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
ah, yes. the non-pc cartoon.  and now we know how to say 'midget' in french (nain).

and the topps back:
in his third year with the cubs, trillo hit .280 and was named to the all-star team for the first time.  in the midsummer classic, he subbed for joe morgan late in the game and struck out against sparky lyle in his only plate appearance.  a future gold glover, trillo led the league in assists by a second baseman in 1977 (the third year in a row that he had done so - and he would do so again in 1978) but also led the circuit in errors at his position.

voici à vous, 1977 manny trillo!
