IDEA: Charting the mustache trend in baseball

Imagine if someone counted the number of mustaches in every year Topps made a baseball card set. Then there could be a line chart to display the mustache trends in baseball through the years.

What year do you think was the height of the most baseball mustaches? Was it when Ryne Sandberg sported a mustache in 1987? Or perhaps sometime during the cRaZy seventies? I’m guessing 1983 was the pinnacle of baseball mustaches. What’s your guess?
