Seeking Ron Hodges card

I'm looking for a jpeg of Ron Hodges's 1977 Topps baseball card (Topps #329 from that year's set). If anyone has it and would be willing to send me a scan of it, please contact me off-list.

And if you're embarrassed to have a Ron Hodges card in your possession, don't worry -- I won't tell anyone.

Thanks,
Paul (plukas@earthlink.net)

I actually might have that card.

What did the '77 Topps cards look like?

Look for the little pennant:

Bingo.

But I suspect Ageefan needs it to illustrate an article and perhaps without that watermark.

Most likely. I e-mailed it to him anyway; it might be better than nothing, depending on if he's trying to meet a deadline. Cool to have another sorta-celeb on the board.

I'm certain I have that card, lmk if seawolf's scan is no good.

Paul got back to me and said it would work. I took the image from metscollector.com; I can't take credit for the scan.

So what might the piece be about? Catcher helmets? #42? Funny-looking sideburns? I vote helmets.

Funny. I've gotten so used to our version or Ron Hodges/Dickshot that the real one doesn't look right.
