1977 fergie jenkins

fergie jenkins makes another appearance on the blog thanks to a little north-south cropping difference and a relocated facsimile autograph on this, his 1977 o-pee-chee card:

has anyone seen tug mcgraw's comic strip?

jenkins was just 10-10 for the red sox in 1977.  he made 28 starts (completing 11 of them), and had a 3.68 era and a singular shutout - a tidy three-hitter against his 'hometown' blue jays (jenkins was born about 200 miles from toronto).  the red sox traded jenkins back to the rangers in december of 1977, and he promptly won 18 games for his new/old team.

voici à vous, 1977 fergie jenkins!
