Brian Meyer, 1990 Donruss

Name: Brian Meyer
Team: Houston Astros
Position: Pitcher
Value of card: 8 yards of collar
Key 1989 stat: An unknown number of trends set
Slave to fashion: Who can forget the summer of 1989, when little-used Astros reliever Brian Meyer set the world on fire with his fashion sense? Meyer played in only 12 games that season, giving him plenty of time with his sketchpad, designing the latest in men's sportswear and facial hair. Here we see his trademark oversize, three-stripe collar that was so large it could only be partially popped. The collar was eventually found to be a safety hazard because it reduced peripheral vision by 23 percent. Meyer is also rocking his handlebar mustache-side goatee combo, which, it was later learned, only came about because Meyer fell asleep while shaving.
