All-Star Game Mustaches

In commemoration of the 86th MLB All Star Game, the city of Cincinnati put out 20 statues of mustaches that resemble the first Pro baseball team, the Cincinnati Redstockings in 1869. According to Major League Baseball there will 20 Cincinnati baseball-inspired statues will be placed around the Queen City. Each statue is an oversized mustache emblazoned with unique All-Star or Reds-centric imagery and text. The mustache resembles the handlebar style sported by Reds mascot Mr. Redlegs.
These are no small works of art. Each statue measures 8 feet wide, 2.5 feet high and weighs approximately 850 pounds. 
Here are just a few we saw.
