Five random 1977 Topps baseball cards

Very special all-time great quotes edition . . .

"We've got a problem here. Luis Tiant wants to use the bathroom but it says no foreign objects in the toilet." - GRAIG NETTLES

"(Garry Maddox) has turned his life around. He used to be depressed and miserable. Now he's miserable and depressed." - HARRY KALAS, Phillies announcer.

"If a tie is like kissing your sister, losing is like kissing your grandmother with her teeth out." - GEORGE BRETT

"He's so ugly, when you walked by him, your pants wrinkle. He made fly balls curve foul." - MICKEY RIVERS, on former major leaguer Danny Napoleon's looks.

"The more self-centered and egotistical a guy is, the better ballplayer he's going to be. You take a team with twenty-five ---holes and I'll show you a pennant. I'll show you the New York Yankees." - BILL LEE

(A tip of the ballcap to Baseball World, and for helping us find these. Also, more hilarious Mickey Rivers quotes can be found here.)

(Oh, and one more thing: The Sox stink, huh?)
