1977 roger metzger

roger metzger's facsimile autograph makes a move to the left on his 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
it's too bad the cartoon doesn't use the proper term (palindrome).  i would have liked to have learned how to say 'palindrome' in french.

and the topps back:
metzger had a horrible year in 1977.  he missed all of may and most of june, and finished the season batting just .186.  he did manage to leg out 6 triples, however.  what i remember metzger for, however, was his 1980 comeback with the giants after an accident with a chainsaw or a hedge trimmer in which he lost some fingers.

voici à vous, 1977 roger metzger!
