1978 Topps – Dave Lemanczyk

This was obviously 1977 class picture day for the Toronto Blue Jays.  As you can see, Dave Lemanczyk’s mother dressed him exceptionally well for it.  The collared shirt underneath the jersey was reserved at the Lemanczyk household for picture days, Christmas Dinner, and Easter Sunday, when sometimes, it would be partnered with a clip-on tie.  That would just be overkill for class picture day, though.  Dave’s mother wouldn’t want the other kids to tease him too much.

1978 Topps - Pete LaCock

Are you serious?  Pete LaCock?  There is no question that this guy should have been in porn.

Other interesting facts, obviously taken from extensive research at Wikipedia:

-Is the son of Peter Marshall, host of The Hollywood Squares from 1966 to 1981.
-Hit a grand slam off Bob Gibson’s last ever pitch in the Majors.
-Never played on the same team in the Majors as Rusty Kuntz… oh, what might have been.
