    Someone is gonna ask me to define "really good" the definition is flexible.

    Mickey Rivers looked like he wasn’t strong enough to hold his bat up. He also always looked like he had a load in his pants

    I guess I understand all the responses so far except for Mickey Lolich.
    Doesn't he look like a completely normal 60's - 70's era pitcher? What am I missing?

    I'm going on record now as stating that Mickey Lolich looked like a pro athlete! Damn the constant
    verbal, okay written abuse I'm bound to take for my controversial stance I'm taking on this matter.

    Lolich was a hero of mine. Charles Atlas he was not.

    Lolich a bit pudgy? Not exactly C.C. Sabathia though. LOL.

    The Korda sisters, LPGA members or professional models?

    Manute Bol. He certainly had the height to look like a center but he was narrow as a 2X4. I had the good fortune to meet and converse with the shorter fellow to the right, several years ago. I am 6'2" and felt like Toulouse Lautrec standing next to him.

    Lots of baseball players on this list. How about: davi d wells, 90's Tony gwynn, Cecil fielder, Phil neikro, 80's Gaylord Perry, Rick reuchal (sp), sid Fernandez, Fernando Valenzuela and I am sure there are tons more. I also thought the 70's cards of George blanda made him seem impossibly old

    Tom Brady. Find his topless shots for the combine. Looked like a CPA

    The two previous pictures I posted were Lexi Thompson at 21 years old, and Lexi
    at 25. Its tough on the LPGA, and the years have been hard on her.

    The first person I thought of was Babe Ruth.

    I can remember Larry Bowa when he first came to the big leagues. He looked like he was about 10 years old and weighed 50 pounds if you put a 20 lb weight in his pocket. Also, David Ortiz could have passed for a D tackle or OG, but not a baseball player.

    Mahomes looks like he should be playing QB for his High School Junior Varsity.

    At the end of his career maybe. In that case I'll add my guy Harmon Killebrew.
