Joe Lavender, 1981 Topps (Football Friday No. 175)


Name: Joe Lavender
Team: Washington Redskins
Position: Cornerback
Value of card: If we told you, you'd be blue
Key 1980 stat: 28 times taking the field dressed like this
We heard it through the lavender vine: Man, Joe Lavender was a cool dude. Check out those glasses. And that headband. And that beard. But what you might not know — despite the radical blue microphone on this card — is that Joe Lavender was the lead singer of an early 1980s funk-soul group, The Head Band. All the members wore sunglasses and football jerseys and, of course, headbands. They were, so to speak, a colorful group. Put your hands together for the members of The Head Band:
  • Tony Turquoise
  • Ron Burgundy
  • Ferdinand Goldenrod
  • Penny Peach
  • Hugo Silver
  • Black Jack
  • George Washington Redskin
