Just because: Utterly awesome Dave Parker photo

By Dayn Perry | Baseball Writer

In his day, slugger Dave Parker was no stranger to having objectively awesome pictures taken of him. He smoked in the dugout, for instance! He wore a hockey mask on the field!

But the absolute work of art below might be the most unassailably bad- and kick-ass of all ...


The story goes that Parker wore this one day in 1976 to rouse his mates out of a brief losing streak. It surely worked. Cultural touchstone, thy name is Dave Parker.

So is there any compelling reason why all Pirates fans shouldn't own this shirt? It goes without saying that they should own the hat.

Lucky for all America, the shirt is for sale at Homage, from whom this bad- and kick-ass image came.
