Let It Grow, Davey

With Davey Lopes rejoining the ranks of Dodger Nation I thought this vintage print found on eBay would be appropriate. It is a 1975 Linnett Portrait drawn by Charles Linnett of Walpole, Mass. These were available originally in various retail stores (possibly at Dodger Stadium) and sometimes given away at games as a promotional "Portrait Day". I am unsure if the Dodgers did the latter.

As you can see, it shows Davey with not only a full head of hair, but also a nice thick afro to boot. I say, "Davey, grow it back!" Of course, Lopes in 1975 was only 30 years old so this request may be a little difficult for him to accomplish today.

  1. That's pretty impressive. The detail in the hair is amazing.
