1977 ron cey

hey now!  the penguin makes (another) appearance on the oh my o-pee-chee blog thanks to the variant cropping and relocated facsimile autograph on his 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
you can see the difference in the photo left-to-right thanks to the white sleeve of the guy in the far right of the dugout on the topps card.

now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
cey started the all-star game at third for the national league for the 3rd time in 4 years and finished 8th in the national league mvp voting.  in the midsummer classic, he was 0 for 2 with a walk and a strikeout, but he hit .308 when it counted - in the nlcs.  against the yankees, cey was just 4 for 21, but he did have a double and a home run to his credit in the series. cey also set a major league record for rbi's in the month of april with 29 in 1977.

voici à vous, 1977 ron cey!
