Josh Reddick's Gold Glove Award has a picture of his face -- but no glorious beard?

Josh Reddick received his 2012 Gold Glove Award before Friday's Tigers-A's game at the O.co Coliseum with his mother and father standing by his side. The trophy looked magnificent and even had a picture of the right fielder's face on it -- but wait, no glorious beard?

The engraving was made pre-beard and the official holding the Gold Glove joked that he might have to "use a black Sharpie" to draw it in.
