Badass Beards – Roy Howell

1981 Topps – Roy Howell

Did you know that Roy Howell was an American League All-Star in 1978?  I’ll bet you didn’t – but now you do.

Did you also know that Roy Howell, while rocking the shit out of the no-flap helmet, had an absolutely spectacular beard for a guy with almost no visible eyebrows?  Now you do.

Roy was one of the best players on some absolutely brutal baseball teams in Toronto, and set the stage in the city for another guy who had some success with the no-flap helmet, even though that guy wore it in the field.  Still, good job, Roy.
