1977 Topps Don Sutton All Star MVP

Going Horizontal

Getting back to one of my older themes, making horizontal cards of the All Star Game MVPs. Due to the dark background, I decided to deviate from the original design by using a white facsimile signature instead of the regular black used in the 1977 set. I borrowed this idea from Mets Cards Like They Ought To Be! 

The 1977 All Star Game started out as another NL rout.  Don Sutton, the starting pitcher, went 3 innings giving up only 1 walk and 1 hit. The NL was leading 5-0 when he left the game. The AL would rally to bring the game within 2 runs twice but the Nationals offense proved too much to overcome as they cruised to their 6th straight All Star victory.


  1. Beautiful card. Kool picture. Thanks for the shoutout :)

  2. Fantastic John!
    I WISH Topps played with MORE horizontal cards through the '70s!
