My Trade With Bo, Part IV of 2847592947582: Stuff Gets Weird

Bo Trade At A Glance:


Yep, it's about to get weird. In the late '80s and early '90s, things did indeed get weird in baseball at times.

Lou Whitaker went through a Jheri curl period, and I totally missed it! Thankfully, the eagle-eyed Dick Perez was on the case.

Dale Murphy went to the Phillies (and later, even the Rockies; I still need a card of him on the Rockies, if they made any), and he learned how to levitate a baseball bat!

Not to be one-upped by Murph, Willie Randolph went to the Brewers and learned how to levitate himself!

Willie Wilson, already weird for going to Oakland, went to the Cubs and shaved off his beard! To my knowledge, levitation was not involved in either of these moves.

In another shocker, Wade Boggs, for however brief a period it was, possibly only long enough for this photo to be taken, went without a mustache!

I honestly have no idea what's up with Fernando Valenzuela here.

And, finally...


Update: in the flurry of scanned cards and trade posts, I realized just a little bit ago that I missed two action shots in my Part III post. I'll be adding those shortly!
