1977 hal mcrae

it doesn't appear to me that hal mcrae's photo is altered, but his facsimile autograph is stacked and in a different spot on his 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
mcrae had led the american league in obp (.407) and ops (.868) in 1976, and that was before he found his power stroke in 1977.  in '77. mcrae hit 21 homers and lead the league with 54 doubles.  as a result, his slugging percentage increased to .515 and he posted an improved ops of .881.  unfortunately, that mark wasn't even good enough to crack the top ten in the league in 1977.

in the 1977 postseason, mcrae hit .444 with 3 doubles and a home run in the alcs as the royals fell to the yankees in five games.

voici à vous, 1977 hal mcrae!
