Wild Card Wednesday – Pittsburgh Pirates
The Pittsburgh Pirates may not have made the World Series this season, but they were an exciting team to watch. This week, a look back at my collection of Pirates cards. They document some of the best players in Pirates history ( that I have in my car collection). They also document some of the WORST uniforms ever…ever.
Dave Parker and Don Robinson through the years.
A series of the fastest runner, the nastiest pitcher, and the ottiest catcher the Pirates ever had.
Hall of Famer Bert Blyleven ROCKING the all gold! One card proves that Tim Foli and Joel Youngblood are not the same person. A bottom row of future Major League managers and…HOLY BUCO!….Sid Bream was a Pirate!!!
On the right is the 1975 team card. On the left is the 1978 card. The uniform choice shows you how far society can fall in just three short years. From the prospect cards: Dorian Boyland played both baseball and basketball at UW-Oshkosh and Vance Law was once considered a top prospect.
Rick Rhoden is thinking about two things: His mustache and his golf game.
The amazing thing about the pinstripes uniform is that it does actually make Kent Tekulve look thinner.
In closing….This is what young baseball players of the 80’s had to look up to in a fashion sense.
