11. Todd Jones

Todd Jones looks like the kind of guy that...oh hell, that's a quality mustache, I can't hate. Play on, playa.


10. Steve Finley

Steve Finley used to always say he wore turtlenecks just to be ironic, but it was really to hide all the fake hickeys that Biggio and Bagwell would give him with a vacuum cleaner in the locker room to make Casey Candaele jealous.


9. Darryl Kile

This wasn't the late Astro and Cardinals pitcher's mound wind-up, this is actually a picture from the little-attended "Darryl Kile Hip-Hop Dance Clinic" on the Astrodome field after a game in September 1991. He signed my fanny pack.


8. Luis Gonzalez

This picture was taken as Xavier Hernandez was off-camera loudly threatening to pour Gatorade on Gonzo's clubhouse Nintendo.


7. Jeff Bagwell

After he won the Rookie of the Year trophy, Jeff Bagwell used to give out his baseball cards to chicks at the bars around Kissimmee during spring training, asking them if they would like to win the "Nookie of the Year" award.

You worked in a Ray Miller joke!  Well done, old chap.

C. Kerfeld was my pitching lessons coach back in 89/90.. Dude taught me how to throw a really wicked curve-ball. So good that Pedro Cerrano couldn't hit it! FWIW, Jay Buhner's bro Ted was my hitting coach.

Ah, the memories. I remember watching Charlie Kerfeld play. He always got a few snickers from us. Poor guy.

Those last two look like ads for a gay cruise.

#2's caption was my favorite. Too funny, Craig. I have almost all of their cards from 1980-1988. I think I'm about 10 years older than you.
