Jeff McKnight, 1991 Topps

Name: Jeff McKnight
Team: Baltimore Orioles
Position: Utility player
Value of card: Three cans of Doc McKnight's Mustache Thinner
Key 1990 stat: Four RBI. Seriously.
Clearing up some rumors about Jeff McKnight:
• McKnight did NOT wear sunglasses. Instead, he purchased reading glasses and shaded them in with a No. 2 pencil.
• McKnight did NOT have a mustache. Instead, he trimmed locks from his golden mullet and stapled them to his upper lip.
• McKnight DID in fact star in a TV pilot, called "McKnight Rider," about a baseball player who moonlights as a rodeo star. The show did NOT co-star the lovely Delta Burke.
• McKnight DID have his own baseball card despite appearing in just 29 games in 1990. This was due in large part to his golden mullet.

  1. I've always thought he looked like Dana Carvey on this card.
