My buddy Max sent me this in the mail yesterday.

Why you ask? Max asked and answered the same question.

Al Oliver had a pretty decent career. He played for 18 years and retired with a .303 batting average, 219 home runs and over 1300 rbis. He spent most of his career with the Pirates, winning the World Series with them in 1971. He was a 7-time All-Star. He bounced around a bit the last few years of his career, coming down for 28 games at the end of 1984 with the Phillies. He was traded to the Phillies on August 20, 1984 by the Giants, who got Kelly Downs in return. Although he played for the Dodgers and the Blue Jays in 1985, he appeared as a Phillies in the 1985 Fleer, Donruss and Topps sets.

I wonder what happened to his men's cologne collection?
