Phil Garner and the Electric Nose Neighbor

Seriously man, have you EVER seen a 'stache like that? I know this is the late-'70s Pirates and all, but that thing looks fake beyond words.

I feel like all those pin stripes make the thing even more spectacular, like a pink paisley tie worn with a purple striped suit or something.

I actually love the idea of this card: the on-deck batter and manager in the background, no doubt watching on of Garner's prodigious 9 home homeruns leave the park. But I can't get past the a mustache straight out of an 1800's saloon. Dude should be riding a horse, robbing banks, swilling whiskey and partying with Ms. Kitty on Gunsmoke, not playing baseball.

Have a good one everybody and goodnight Pumpsie Green, wherever you are
