while the differences in the photo cropping and facsimile autograph placement are slight, they are enough to qualify as variations on dick tidrow's 1977 o-pee-chee card:
now the o-pee-chee back:
dick tidrow, on the other hand, did not bat at all in 1976. or 1977, for that matter. such was the life of a pitcher in the american league. nor did he pitch 10.2 innings as a reliever in a single game. he did appear in 49 games, however, and posted a record of 11-4 with 5 saves. towards the end of the season, the yankees moved him to the starting rotation, and he earned the win in 5 of the 7 starts he made. he was back in the bullpen for the postseason, however, appearing in relief in two games in each of the alcs and the world series.
voici à vous, 1977 dick tidrow!
