A new category – dedicated to those cards and card subjects who are just too damn cool for life.
First up, Kent Tekulve, sporting the dark aviators (as he is on the card back as well), and looking like he was going to get on his Harley after the game and go cause some shit at a roadhouse somewhere.
Tekulve, one of the great submarine pitchers of his era, actually appeared as a pitcher in 90 games in 1987… the same year that he turned 40. I’d say that entitles you to be able to wear anything you want.
Cheers to you, Kent Tekulve, for rocking that look no matter what anyone thought.
