Colonel Lefty Mustard

Steve Carlton (1972)
Pitcher - Philadelphia Phillies
This photo was taken after Carlton's first season with the Phillies.  It was one of the most remarkable seasons ever put together by a pitcher.  He won 27 games for a team that only won 59, he pitched 30 complete games, had 310 strikeouts and an ERA of 1.97.  His winter wardrobe was remarkable for other reasons.
