1987 Spokane Indians at the Mall - Reggie Farmer

Outfielder Reggie Farmer played five years in the Padres organization, all in A ball. In 507 games he hit .265 with 22 HR, 177 RBI and 107 SB. After his baseball career he became an elementary school teacher and he is now Principal of the Somerset Academy of Las Vegas. A fuller account of his career can be found at The Greatest 21 Days.

Reggie is at a hair salon, posing with some hair products whose names are impossible to read at this size. Cards from later seasons show the salon more clearly as a Regis salon. Yes, Reggie at Regis. The first Regis Salon opened in Minneapolis in 1922 and there are now over 10,000 around the country, making them the world's largest salon chain. The NorthTown Mall location still exists, making it the first store so far in this series that still exists in this mall. Check out the salon customers who I am sure never expected to be on a baseball card while getting their hair done.
