as you can see by the fact that his hat is closer to the top of the photo window and his facsimile autograph is shifted to the right, bill travers' 1977 o-pee-chee card is a photo and an autograph placement variation. here is travers' 1977 o-pee-chee card:
i am guessing the bullpen was pretty depleted, because on august 14, 1977, in the second game of a double header (their third in 13 days), travers was allowed to pitch 7.2 innings in which he allowed 14 earned runs (a feat equaled most recently by vin mazzaro of the royals in 2011)! his era jumped over an entire run that day! he was 4-5 entering that game, but wound up losing it and 6 of his next 7 starts.
voici à vous, 1977 bill travers!
