Blow Out the Candles December 30

Dodger great, Hall of Famer Sandy Koufax is celebrating his 77th birthday today.
1964 Topps #200

March 4, 1963

April 12, 1964

If you want a good read about Sandy Koufax I highly recommend this one. It alternates biography with an inning by inning account of Sandy's perfect game against the Cubs on Sept. 9, 1965.

Last week was brother Frank's birthday, today it's Lester Patrick, born in 1883. Like his brother, Lester is also a member of the Hall of Fame.

Half of the pre-fab four, The Monkees, share a birthday today.

Michael Nesmith is celebrating his 70th birthday today.

Davy Jones was born in Manchester, England on this date in 1945.  He died recently on February 29, 2012.

A Happy 4th Birthday to a really great card blog Wrigley Wax.  Even if you're not a Cubs fan like we are, check it out.  You'll enjoy it.


  1. All these years, and I never knew that Mike & Davy shared a birthday.

    We just watched my favorite Monkees episode the other day, Mijacogeo (The Frodis Caper). It was the last episode, directed and co-written by Micky, and it seemed like they did whatever they wanted and said "What can they do to us? We've already been canceled". Unrelentingly silly and stupid, but in a very good way.

  2. Happy birthday to Wrigley Wax, Wool Hat, and all the others.
