1977 dave lopes

maybe o-pee-chee left the facsimile autograph where topps left it on dave lopes' 1977 card and just lowered the photo in the cropping window, but that would have been so unlike them.  i'm giving this card both a photo and autograph placement variation.  here is lopes' 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
more belt!

now the o-pee-chee back:
i wonder who 'they' are - the ones who are still talking about lopes' stolen base streak. i would have liked to talk about it with them.

and the topps back:
lopes was unable to lead the national league in stolen bases for the third straight year, tallying only 47 swipes which put him 6th on the leader board.  he did have two steals in the world series against the yankees, however, while the five guys ahead of him were at home watching.

voici à vous, 1977 dave lopes!
