1994 O-Pee-Chee - Chris Sabo

Chris Sabo isn’t known for winning a World Series in 1990 with the Cincinnati Reds (where he hit .563 for the Series), nor is he known for hitting 25 home runs and stealing 25 bases that same season.  He is also not known for being the 1988 National League Rookie of the Year.

He is definitely not known for being originally drafted by the Montreal Expos… but really, who would be?

Chris Sabo is known for his goggles.

Featured after signing with Baltimore before the 1994 season, the pair that Sabo sports on this 1994 O-Pee-Chee card are particularly fashion-forward.  Look at that tint colour… is that pink?  The bright white nose bridge… the transparent frames.  There is so much to take in here.

Interestingly, this vision-friendly fashion trend is also the name of a pretty funny Cincinnati Reds blog – Chris Sabo’s Goggles.  Check it out, if you’re a Reds fan.  There must be some of you out there.
