1974 george theodore

george theodore was one of the three cards to be renumbered thanks to hank aaron's special subset in the 1974 o-pee-chee set.  here's the front of his card
same as the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
theodore went from 8 in the topps set to 99 in the o-pee-chee version.  sadly, this means that del crandall and his milwaukee brewer coaching staff was deleted from the set.  here's their topps card, front
and back
theodore played for the mets in 1973 and 1974, his only years in the majors.  he managed to hit two home runs in his career, one in each of his seasons.  while it would have been nice for the brewers leaders to be featured in the o-pee-chee set, i am glad that theodore's card was saved, if for the sole reason that we know that 'marshmallow' is 'guimave' and that there is no french translation for 'milk shake'.

voici à vous, 1974 george theodore!
