For Opening Day, great Phillies hairstyles of the late 1970s

The Philadelphia Phillies play their season opener against the Atlanta Braves tonight. To mark the occasion of baseball's return and Cole Hamels' truly special mustache, here are six late 1970s Phillies baseball cards from my collection featuring Very Special Hair.

Arnold Ray "Bake" McBride

Barry Clifton Foote1

Foote Note
1. Barry Foote only played 57 games with the Phillies in 1977 and 1978. He was the third overall pick in the first round of the 1970 Major League Baseball Draft (by the Montreal Expos). Players selected after him in the first round included Darrell Porter and Darnell "Disco Dan" Glenn Ford. Actually, it was a pretty terrible first round, in retrospect.
