Blow Out the Candles January 5

Dolphins running back Mercury Morris is celebrating his 67th birthday today.
1971 Topps #91

Morris was a member of the 1972 perfect season Miami Dolphins.

January 8, 1973

Will we ever see another perfect season? It's now 40 years and counting and Don Shula and his boys are still on top.

Actress Diane Keaton is celebrating her 68th birthday today. I know she's done a ton of things since but I'll always love her for her roles in the great seventies Woody Allen films, Sleeper, Love and Death, Play it Again, Sam, Manhattan, and of course, Annie Hall for which she won a Best Actress Oscar.

June 30, 1977
Love and Death
Annie Hall -- An Awkward Conversation
Annie Hall -- The Lobster Scene

Chris Stein of Blondie is celebrating his 64th birthday today. He co-wrote many of Blondie's hits, among them, Heart of Glass, Rapture, Rip Her to Shreds and Dreaming.


  1. Love that '71 Topps Mercury Morris, is that your actual copy? Beautiful card if so!

    1. Yes. Every card in my birthday posts is mine (with rare noted exceptions). That's the main reason I started the birthday thing in the first place, as a fun way of featuring random cards. I've sometimes wondered if readers realize that. I rarely get comments about the cards themselves.
