Stacey Augmon, 1991-92 Upper Deck (Basketball Week No. 4)

Name: Stacey Augmon
Team: Atlanta Hawks
Position: Guard/forward
Value of card: One gallon of chlorine, 20 pumice stones
Key 1990 stat: 365 T-shirts tucked in
I hate the '80s: Atlanta was abuzz after the Hawks selected UNLV stud Stacey Augmon with the ninth overall pick in the 1991 NBA draft. Things got out of control that November, however, when the team, at Augmon's request, wore acid-wash jean shorts and monotone T-shirts as their uniforms at a home game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. "Acid Wash Night" was a disaster. The outfits were uncomfortable, both to play in and to watch, but the night got even worse when a confused Dominique Wilkins dropped a couple tabs of LSD, bathed in a tub of hot water at midcourt and proceeded to flap his arms and jump all around the court, screaming "I'm a hawk! I'm a hawk!" at the top of his lungs.
