'Staches, 'Fros, and Bad Do's

Have you ever noticed that professional athletes today often look much different from professional athletes from decades ago?  Case in point, these three cards from 1976-77 O-Pee-Chee:

Len Frig was a defenseman for the now defunct Cleveland Barons.  His hockey card states that "Len is an excellent skater".   However, Len is not excellent with his hairbrush. 

Jerry Korab was a defenseman for the Buffalo Sabres and his nickname was King Kong.  Love the 'stache, Jerry... and kudos on the necklace.

Ernie Hicke, a winger for the Minnesota North Stars "operates a hockey school in the off-season."  Ernie also operates with little regard to style.... another rockin' necklace and an afro for the ages.
