Mustache Greats #10: Wally Backman

Years with Mets: 1980-1988

Look at that picture over there. That's what I'm talking about. That picture alone is enough to get you into the Mets Mustache Greats Hall of Heroes. This post should really end right here. What's that? You need some more proof? If that's the case, you should probably just stop reading this blog right now, but I'm gonna throw some facts at you anyway.
• .283 average in nine years with the Mets (that's equivalent to about .396 in 21st century averages).
• Member of Backman-Teufel Overdrive
• Accomplished orator and future Mets manager. See evidence here.
