1977 tim foli

i believe that o-pee-chee did nothing to tim foli's 1977 card except move his facsimile autograph a little bit.  here is foli's 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
i guess there wasn't much going on in foli's 1976 season based on the text topps used.  in 1977, all four of foli's home runs came as a giant.  that's because the expos traded him for chris speier in late april.  prior to the trade, foli had appeared in 13 games and was hitting .175.  for the giants, he hit .228 in 104 games, and had his contract purchased by the mets after the season ended - a deal that gave us a better o-pee-chee variation.

voici à vous, 1977 tim foli!
