1977 rennie stennett

a little north-south cropping difference and a totally relocated and differently stacked facsimile autograph are the reasons that rennie stennett shows up in my catalog of o-pee-chee variations.  here is stennett's 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
stennett hit .336 for the pirates in 1977 - an average that would have placed him second to teammate dave parker on the national league leader board - but he did not have enough at bats to qualify for the title.  stennett played in only 116 games in '77 due to a broken leg that ended his season in mid august. although stennett debuted for the pirates in 1971, he did not appear in the world series that year.  fortunately, he was still with pittsburgh when they won it all in 1979, even though he was no longer their regular second baseman at the time.

voici à vous, 1977 rennie stennett!
