1977 dave parker

there's a slight difference in the north-south alignment of dave parker's photo on his 1977 o-pee-chee card, and his stacked facsimile autograph is also in a different spot and rotated.  here is the cobra's 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
1977 was parker's coming out year - he led the league with 215 hits, 44 doubles, and a .338 batting average.  he also won his first gold glove award and finished third in the league mvp voting.  he had 21 home runs on the year, with three two-homer games and a walk-off.  parker was also named to the all-star team for the first time, starting for the national league in right field.  he was 1 for 3 in the game without any outfield assists, but would return in 1979 to take care of that.

voici à vous, 1977 dave parker!
