1972-73 Topps #80

Rod's #7 jersey was the first to be retired  by the Rangers organization.  He is still their career leader in both goals (406) and points (1021).

Actor Jamie Farr is celebrating his 77th birthday today.

If you're a Dick Van Dyke Show fan you might remember Jamie as a delivery man who brought food to the gang at the Alan Brady Show.  Of course he's best known for his role as Corporal Max Klinger on M*A*S*H.

Here's Jamie shaking hands with Ronald Raegan.  Look who's standing to Farr's left, none other than Say Hey, Willie Mays.

Singer and actress Debbie Harry is 66 today.

Debbie is best known as the lead singer of the group Blondie.

The cover, 1981's KooKoo, is a collaboration between photographer Brian Aris, and illustrator H.R. Giger.

Comedian, writer, actor Dan Aykroyd is celebrating his 59th birthday today.
