1977 Fleer Steve Carlton

In 1977 Fleer continued to make football cards featuring official logos but not the players' names. These cards advertised "Live Game Photos" which were few and far between on Topps cards of that era.  Here is 1977 Cy Young award winner Steve Carlton on what would have been a baseball version of that set.

In 1977 Carlton won his second of four Cy Young awards. His league leading 23 wins helped the Phillies win the NL East. His luck ran out in the playoff. He gave up 9 runs in 11 2/3 innings as the Dodgers won 3 games to 1.
