Hall of Unfortunate Names

This is a first in what I hope is a long run of posts chronicling what I think are unfortunate names. I apologize for the 7th gradishness of this inaugural member. I present to you, the 1976 Topps card of Dick Pole. Couldn't he have gone with Rick, Ritchie, or something, Bubby, anything but Dick?


  1. haha I love it. And I think you need to check out my site good sir. It's got a little more of this kind o' thing hahaha.

  2. The most disturbing thing is he willingly told everyone to call him Dick instead of Richard. Either he has a great sense of humor or he is the most oblivious man ever. Or...his parents actually named him Dick and not Richard...
