Manly, Magical Mustaches – Dave Babych

30 Jan

1990-91 Pro Set - Dave Babych

Dave Babych’s mustache was one of the greatest and most legendary the NHL has ever seen.  It was thick and dark, a harbinger of a bygone era when Hartford and Boston faced off for New England NHL supremacy.

The best part of this card is that, born in 1961, Dave Babych would have been 29 years old.  Twenty-nine.  He was clearly a man among boys.  As usual, I credit the mustache.
