Movember: The best mustaches in Boston Red Sox history

Dennis Lamp

Oh, Dennis Lamp, you are a legend. If not for your pitching, with a 96-96 record and 3.93 career ERA in 639 games (163 starts), then for your glorious mustache. Lamp spent four seasons in Boston, and it never ceased to amaze me how frequently he popped up in packs of baseball cards I purchased between 1988 and 1991.

Lamp’s burly, auto mechanic build and impressive crescent moon of bristles occupying nearly a third of his face made me almost fearful to put his cards in the shoebox with the other bit players (the stars went into the plastic pages of a binder), should the 6’4″, 200 pound Lamp be insulted, figure out where I live and break down the front door with a lug wrench.
