1977 Topps Baseball #370 - John Montefusco


  • The 1977 season was a tough one for John Montefusco. After two good years in 1975 and 1976, John signed a five-year contract before the 1977 season. Montefusco started the season poorly - he was 2-7 with a 3.94 ERA in late May.
  • Montefusco was placed on the disabled list due to an ankle injury in late May and was reactivated on July 6.
  • After his return from the disabled list, John pitched better. He was 5-5 over the last three months of the year.
  • Useless trivia: In 1981 John's cards from the three major card companies all had similar numbers. His Topps card was #438, the Fleer was #439, and the Donruss card was #434.
