1977 steve yeager

it's a slight difference in cropping and a leveling out of the facsimile autograph for steve yeager on this, his 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
 now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
1977 was a big year for yeager.  he achieved career highs in runs scored (53), doubles (21), home runs (16), and rbi (55) while throwing out 39% of potential base stealers.  in the postseason, the catcher of the team of my youth put up numbers very similar to those that would net him a share of the world series mvp award in 1981.  in 6 games, yeager hit .316 with 2 home runs and 5 rbi, and his ops was 1.018.  unfortunately, reggie jackson was even better, and the dodgers lost the series to the yankees.

voici à vous, 1977 steve yeager!
