1977 robin yount

this one almost snuck past me.  there is an ever-so-slight left-to-right shift in the photo, and a slightly more noticeable upward shift in the facsimile autograph on robin yount's 1977 o-pee-chee card.  see if you agree - here is yount's 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
1977 was a solid, but not spectacular year for yount.  of course, he was only 21 years old at the time.  he had a .288 batting average with 4 homers, 49 rbi, and 16 steals in 154 games played.  his third home run of the season came in the top of the 9th inning in a game against the mariners.  with the brew crew down 5-2 and two runners on base, yount launched a two-out, three-run homer to force extra innings.  milwaukee wound up winning the game on a 10th inning don money homer.

voici à vous, 1977 robin yount!
