The hair-raising Silvio Martinez

There have been a lot of posts lately about big hair on baseball cards. Night Owl posted this 1981 Donruss card of Silvio Martinez, which is certainly an eyecatcher.

I bet a lot of people looking at that card in 1981 were wondering, how does he get a cap on over that? Donruss obliged by showing him with his cap the next year:

Interestingly, Martinez never pitched again after that. Perhaps he got a neck injury from carrying all that extra weight on his head?
