The Latino Kenny Powers

Danny Darwin 1989 Topps
Apparently Darwin didn’t have many notable accomplishments when this card was released as the fact on the back reads “Danny and his wife are parents of three children.”  It could have at least mentioned his great mustache or the fact his nicknames were the “Bonham Bullet” and “Dr. Death.”

Sleepy Floyd 1994-95 Fleer Flair
Great mustache, even better name.  Eric Floyd earned his nickname due to his hooded eyelids making him look perpetually sleepy. And thus one of the best nicknames in all of sport was born.

Mark Malone 1987 Topps
Two things you should know about Mark Malone.  One, he has a superb mustache.  Two, despite being a quarterback, he held the Steelers record for longest TD reception (90 yards) before Mike Wallace broke it with a 95-yarder.  Seriously a quarterback with a 90 yard touchdown reception.  Maybe more should start growing mustaches these days.

Shareef Abdur-Rahim 1996-97 Upper Deck
How about some Draft Day ‘stache?  The third pick of the 1996 draft, Abdur-Rahim would go on to star for the Grizzlies and play a total of twelve seasons, making one All Star team and winning a gold medal at the 2000 Olympics.

Ennis Whatley 1993-94 Fleer
Whatley played 10 seasons in the NBA, coming into the league in 1983 for the Kings when they were still in Kansas City.  Perhaps his greatest accomplishment though is the lip caterpillar has was rocking with the Hawks.

Dana Barros Upper Deck SP
How about an election-themed mustache post.  Dana Barros played for the 76ers, named for the year we declared independence, and had a few great years in the mid 90’s.  His mustache isn’t much but it’s the thought that counts.

Warren Moon 1991 Pro Set
With helmets covering their faces, the football player mustache is quite a bit more rare than in other sports.  That’s why we salute those that make it easy to see their mustaches behind the facemasks.  Bravo Warren Moon, bravo.

Acie Earl 1995-96 Hoops
In honor of Movember, every card posted this month will feature a glorious mustache.  It’s quite disappointing there aren’t more in today’s sporting world but at least we can relive the glory days of the 80’s and early 90’s.
Up first is former Toronto Raptors center Acie Earl.  Earl played four seasons in the NBA and continued to play overseas through 2004.
This card has so many great things going on - most notably a solid mustache, a haircut that looks a little like a high top fade without the fade and what could possibly be the most awesome/worst uniforms in the history of sports.

Jack Haley 1994-95 Collector’s Choice
The NBA regular season has started which means a shift to basketball cards as well.  Up first is former Spurs power forward/center Jack Haley, who shares his name with the actor who played the Tin Man.  Ironically after his career ended the basketball playing Haley acted in Eddie and Rebound and in the music video for Aerosmith’s “Love  in an Elevator.” 
Haley was also a member of the 72 game winning 1995-96 Chicago Bulls but he played in only one regular season game.

Darrell Green 1995 Topps Stadium Club
Was there a better cornerback in not just the 90’s but all time than Darrell Green?  He didn’t retire until he was 42, nearly unheard of for a football player let alone one that has to rely on speed.  But Green had speed, and plenty of it, winning the NFL’s Fastest Man Competition four times.
