1977 dennis blair

there really isn't a whole lot of difference between the images on dennis blair's 1977 cards, but for some reason, o-pee-chee went with an entirely different photo than topps.  they also adjusted his facsimile autograph.  here is dennis blair's 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
blair spent the whole of 1977 in the minor leagues, and in september he became the player to be named later in a deal between the expos and the orioles.  he stayed with the orioles organization until july of 1979 when he was traded to the padres for another minor leaguer.  the pads finally called him up for what amounted to a 5-game stint during the summer of 1980.  in those five appearances, blair made one start (it was a good one - 7.1 innings and only 2 runs allowed) and took the loss in one of his turns as a reliever.

voici à vous, 1977 dennis blair!
