Here’s a new thread that was proposed to me by a few readers over the past couple years, re-doing all the Topps 1977 Blue Jays and Mariners cards, using photos of the players in their uniforms rather than all the airbrushed images they were forced to understandably use.
We’ll start it off with former pitcher Pete Broberg:
Ironically, while Broberg was selected by Seattle in the expansion
draft, he was traded to the Chicago Cubs in April of 1977, never
actually pitching for the Mariners.
He would only go on to pitch in 22 games for the Cubs in 1977 before
finding himself playing for the Oakland A’s in 1978, which would end up
being the last year of his Major League career.
Coming up in 1971 as a 21-year old with the Washington Senators, Broberg
would pitch eight-seasons and post a 41-71 career record with a 4.56
earned run average over 206 games and 963 innings pitched.
