’30-YOC Top Ten Lists’ – ‘Top Ten Mustaches’

’30-YOC Top Tem Lists’ – ‘Top Ten Mustaches’

Here it is gang, the debut of my new series.  Each and every Sunday evening I will publish a new ‘Top Ten List’ for your reading pleasure.  And just like everything that I do at 30-YOC, each list will have a vibe that comes directly from the 1970s and 1980s.

So, without further ado, here is 30-YOCs ‘Top Ten Mustaches’:

#10 – Ron Burgundy – ‘Cannon Ball!!!!’

#9 – Rich ‘Goose’ Gossage – Gossage’s stache has been tested for its DNA.  The closest match?  The walrus!

#8 – Yosemite Sam – Classic cartoon mustache.

#7 – Richard Roundtree as ‘Shaft’ – Shaft’s mustache had magnetic powers 0 it drew in ‘the ladies’ from miles away.

#6 – Hulk Hogan – The Hulkster’s mustache trained, said it’s prayers, and took vitamins.  30+ years strong!!

#5 – Fu Man Chu – Hell, anyone(fictional or not) that has a mustache named after him has to make the list!!

#4 – Paul Teutel Sr. – Sr’s mustache can bench press more than me.  And you too!!

#3 – Rollie Fingers – Oh Rollie, my friend. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.  You’ve made mustaches so enjoyable…

#2 – Tom Selleck as ‘Magnum PI’ – When I asked my wife to name the first celebrity when I said mustache, she exclaimed ‘Magnum PI’.  I have to think that she is not the only woman who would answer that way…

#1 – Tyra Banks’ milk mustache.  Tyra back in the day – ‘Nuff Said!!!

Thanks for reading everyone  – I hope you enjoyed it.  And if you ever have any ideas for themes for my ‘Top Ten Lists’ please let me hear it.


Wade Boggs 1992 Upper Deck

Wade Boggs 1992 Upper Deck

Far from exceptional, the 1992 Upper Deck issue was nothing close to spectacular.  While their previous releases into the hobby made collectors gasp, this one actually made most of us yawn.

Having virtually no design elements to capture your attention and draw your eye, they could have at least given us a better action photo of Boggs on this card.

See for yourself…

I told ya – YAWN!!

I do like the old school Red Sox logo though, but it doesn’t save the card – That’s for sure…

Happy Birthday Will Clark!!!

Happy Birthday Will Clark!!!

Will Clark turns 47 years old today.

Noted as having one of the sweetest swings in the game during his playing days, Will Clark became an instant favorite to many baseball fans due to his incredible talent and personality.  On the field he was a perennial MVP candidate that flirted with .300 every year.  Off the field, he was a loud-mouthed, opinionated player who you couldn’t wait to her what he was going to say next.

Today, Will Clark is employed by the San Francisco Giants.  I sent a card of him to Spring Training hoping for an autograph – Wish me luck!!

Happy Birthday Mr. Clark!!

Happy Anniversary Hank Aaron!!!

On this day in 1954 you made your debut as a professional baseball player.  Happy Anniversary!

At the time who would have thought that you would be the player to surpass the great Babe Ruth’s all-time home run mark?  Who would have thought that you would have been 1 of just a few players in the history of the game to eclipse the 500 home run and 3,000 hit plateaus?  Who would have thought you would have been a 21-time All-star?  A 3-time Gold Glove winner?  A Most Valuable Player?  A World Series winner?

Thank you for dreaming Mr. Aaron.  Thank you for reaching for the stars!!!
