Alvin Davis' conversation with Topps photographer, 1989: "What are you doing all the way over there, baby? Come a little bit closer. No, a bit closer. C'mon, girl, I won't bite. Look into these doe eyes; all you're going to see is love, baby. That's right. Good. Good. Let me put on this giant batting helmet so I look even sexier. Ah, now I'm feeling all right. I'm in the mood for love, and these baby browns are seeing you are, too. C'mere, girl. Just a bit closer so the kids can see what a real baseball player looks like. Give them the opportunity to witness my luxurious wraparound mustache in all its glory. Now, snap the picture. Closer, closer. Snap that picture. There you go, sweetcheeks; just like a woman, a baseball card can never be too close."

  1. I LOVE the MS Paint/Photoshop mustache. It looks like someone went happy with the spray can function
