sportscaster goodness - steve garvey

steve garvey was featured on two 1977-79 sportscaster cards - the all-star card and one of his own, shown below
the back is chock full of the steve garvey story highlights - the batboy years, the michigan state years, the 1974 all-star write-in and mvp, and the 200-hit seasons.
i appreciate the fact that the card also recognizes that his all-american image was 'resented by some' (don sutton, anyone?).  it's a fact that i overlooked as a youngster - a youngster who wished he attended steve garvey junior high school.
