Big Glasses and Big Hair

I never heard of Pete Ladd before I pulled this card out of a recent repack.

If all you saw was the photo would you be able to guess the year of this baseball card from the glasses and hair alone? I checked on some photos from 1986 and it looks like just about everybody I knew had glasses like that, even me, although not quite so big. What was the deal?

As for the hair, I stopped wearing my hair like that sometime in the 1970s.
