Blow Out the Candles Nov 23

1975 Topps #430

Luis Tiant celebrates his 69th birthday today. Luis had one of the most recognizable delivery motions of any pitcher. He won 229 games in his 19 year career spent mostly with Cleveland and Boston.

Adolph "Harpo" Marx was born on this date in 1888.

This face is called a "Gookie". It was modelled after a man in the Marx's neighborhood that rolled cigars in a shop window.

My copy of Harpo's autobiography. You can tell I've had it a long time. The price was $1.75.

Artist Wayne Thiebaud turn 90 years old today.
