Ed Vande Berg's 1983 Topps card has everything a collector can ask for in a common card of the 1980's.
Dip can prominently displayed in back pocket...[CHECK]
Mesh spring training cap before JT brought sexy back...[CHECK]
Obligatory wispy mustache and unkempt longish hair...[CHECK]
Ed Vande Berg
1982 Topps #183
Pitcher, Seattle Mariners
Topps Fact: Notched save in 4-3 win at Baltimore, 5-4-82.
GMT Fact: Repeatedly harassed Topps headquarters for assurance "Vande Berg" was in fact printed as two words to point Topps almost pulled the card from the set entirely.
