showing just how late in the year o-pee-chee went to press, marty perez was traded from the giants to the yankees on march 14, 1977. the ontario airbrush artists used a different photo than topps, and were not only able to get a yankees cap on perez and change the team name, they also recognized that with willie randolph at second, perez might see some action at shortstop, and so they modified his position as well. with its multitude of variations, here is marty perez's 1977 o-pee-chee card:
in oakland, perez played in 115 games at second, third, and short over the remainder of the season. he hit .231 with 2 homers and 23 rbi.
voici à vous, 1977 marty perez!
