while o-pee-chee didn't correct the vertigo-inducing background like they did with rawly eastwick, they did slightly adjust the placement of mike torrez's facsimile autograph. here is his 1977 o-pee-chee card:
to make things worse (for me, anyway) torrez took that level of dominance into the 1977 world series. he won two games against the dodgers in the fall classic, throwing complete games in game 2 and the game 6 clincher. i was even more ticked at torrez the following year when bucky dent hit that home run against him (torrez signed a free agent deal with the red sox prior to the 1978 season) to win the al east for the yankees.
voici à vous, 1977 mike torrez!
