The 1880's were the first golden age of the mustache in baseball. Unfortunately, photos from that era are few and far between, and trying to choose just a lucky few from the heavenly thickets of facial hair that were so common in those years is a task King Solomon would ask to be taken from him. Thus, I shall let the glorious mustache of Bob Ferguson stand for all those in the formative days of the game, those titans of the nineteenth century who sported such wonderful facial coiffage.
Look at it. The word elegant simply isn't enough to describe the grace, the beauty. The shape of Ferguson's mustache exactly mirrors that of the tie on his uniform. That, we may be assured, is no accident.
There's no baseball mustache hall of fame, but if there were, these lip sweaters would have to be included!
