A Champion's Stache: #15 John Martin

In light of my newfound commitment to the greater good that is the collective power of Michigan fans growing mustaches for the September 5th opening game, I thought it best to recall a time 25 years ago when Mustaches led our own Detroit Tigers to their last World Series Championship

Sometimes a mustache just isn't about being cool, right John?

1984 Topps #24 John Martin


John Martin serves an important role for us, he is the divider between the good and the bad. Up to this point, we've had role players, and back of the rotation types, with the exception, Jack Morris, just biding his time for appropriate hyponasal growth to occur. The '84 Tigers filled in the gaps with substandard Mustaches, because that is what winners do. They find pieces to the puzzle. A team doesn't start the year 35-5 out of the blue, do they?
