continuing on from this morning's post, here are the rest of my 1971 o-pee-chee dodger cards. they are easy to spot because the reverse side is all yellow...
dodgers team card
as far as i know.
not too many updates to the franchise record holders other than the pennant winners list. mike marshall's 106 games would be on there instead of bob miller's 74, and shawn green's 49 home runs eclipses duke snider's 43. interesting that willie keeler was thought to have had 179 singles in 1900, as baseball reference credits him with 175. even stranger is that he had 190 in 1899, but that is nowhere to be seen on the back of the card.
parker made a run at johnny frederick's franchise doubles record of 52 in 1970, hitting 47
he also had a career best 111 rbi in '71
this is the last of the 'sunburst' backs for the dodgers.
this is where the bill buckner card would be if i owned a copy. it's listed on my nefarious 9 - help a blogger out! you will be rewarded big time for this card.
not only do the cards from these last series lack the sunburst photos, but we get no french text either. at least the backs are still yellow!
it's a bit banged up, but i'll take it for only a couple of bucks as opposed to twenty or so.
i'll keep an eye out for the billy buckner rookie, but i will also turn my attention to the 1972 o-pee-chee dodgers. thank goodness the o-pee-chee set from that year tops out at number 525 - no steve garvey, don sutton, hoyt wilhelm, or frank robinson cards to worry about!
