Oakland A's infielder Eric Sogard has brought eyeglasses back to baseball. It's time to rank the greatest glassletes of all-time.

#10 – Al Arbour

Al Arbour played 17 season as an NHL defenseman, won the Stanley Cup with three different teams and was the last player in the NHL to wear glasses on the ice. All of the other eyeglass'd hockey players presumably retired before him due to shards of glass sticking out of their eyes.

#9 – Kurt Rambis

Rambis played 14 seasons in the NBA and was integral in the Los Angeles Lakers winning winning four championships. What he lacked in athleticism he more than made up for in glasses tape.

#8 – Tom Henke

Henke is 18th on the all-time saves list with 311. But perhaps the greatest save of his life is when his eye doctor found glasses thick enough to fix 850/20 vision.

#7 – Chuck Muncie

Muncie rushed for 6,702 yards during his career, played in three Pro Bowls, and ran for 19 touchdowns with the Chargers in 1981. But he will always be remembered as the only glasslete who looked kind of cool.

#6 – Tom Kite

Kite was one of the top golfers of the 1980s and early '90s. He won 19 times on the PGA tour and the 1992 U.S. Open. And he did it all while wearing your grandmother's glasses.
