Too Cool for Cardboard – Jeff(rey?) Leonard

1985 Topps All-Star - Jeff Leonard

For most of his career, I remember him as Jeffrey Leonard, but in 1985, it was just Jeff.

Yes, that’s a meshback cap on backwards – backwards!

Yes, he’s staring menacingly (seductively?) at the camera.

Yes, Wikipedia states that he was known for his “one flap down” home run trot, for taking too long to round the bases during the 1987 NLCS, and that he also acquired the nickname “Penitentiary Face.”  Seriously, check it out.

That’s cool.
