Badass Beards – Jeff Reardon

1988 Topps - Jeff Reardon

Here at Sorting by Teams I pay a lot of attention to the mustache… and for good reason.  The mustache is an incredible thing, even though some people who have them shouldn’t be allowed near schools.

However, the beard is an often overlooked feature that deserves recognition of its own.  Hence, today’s new category, Badass Beards.

One of the best Badass Beards in history was Jeff Reardon.  I remember him during the 1992 World Series while playing for the Braves, talking about giving up the game winning hit to Candy Maldonado: “People say why’d you throw him another curveball?  Well, I threw him another curveball because he looked sick on the first two.”  I thought he might rip the reporter’s head off.

He looked that day like he did on 1988 Topps.  Angry.  Bearded.  Badass.
