"…BUT YOU CAN'T RUN FROM OSCAR GAMBLE'S AFRO!!!"
I never noticed before, but behind George Hendrick on his 1976 Topps card (#570), we have the afro of ALL afro's, Oscar Gamble's fluffy dome cover, making yet another appearance!
The 'fro was an entity unto itself huh?!
You just gotta love it! Take a look:

By the way, I DO love the Cleveland Indians visor Hendrick is sporting, as well as the distant gaze he's exhibiting, as if contemplating life's true meaning or something.
Maybe he was wondering just how much longer he had to toil in Cleveland?
He had no need to worry though if that was the case.
After one more productive year with the Indians, he'd be off to San Diego for about a year and a half before moving on to St. Louis, where he'd be an important cog on some good teams, including their 1982 world championship squad.
