Goudey Tradeaway #2: Blalock for Vuckovich

This trade comes in from T in Seattle, Washington.

Giving: Hank Blalock, #45 (red back)
Getting: Pete Vuckovich, 1986 Topps

I'm having trouble determining what makes this card of Vuckovich so great. Is it the fu manchu mustache? Or that he probably got that Darth Vader mullet in order to get in free to see the monster truck rally at the Bradley Center? Or perhaps because it looks like the Topps photographer found him propped against a wall and snapped a photo from a safe distance.

No, it's Pete's windbreaker. With the snap buttons.

If you want a random card from my Goudey box break, email me for instructions.
