Facial hair collection - a visual guide

For my mini-collections sampler, I grabbed 18 cards from my facial hair collection to display on a plastic page - hoarding cards featuring images of baseball players showing some sort of facial hair maybe quite peculiar, because the collection forces myself to consciously look at players' faces in an aesthetic sense.

Facial hair is about a manly 'style thing' though, so there maybe a fascination with seeing a beard or mustaches on individual baseball players - because it becomes part of a player's personality [or brand] at times [see one time big leaguer Brian Wilson].

In a conservative sport, players growing a little 'something something' on their faces can be something refreshing to look at - baseball would even be more boring if the other 29 MLB teams adapted the New York Yankees' appearance policy.
