Indian Head Pennies Before Abraham Lincoln's portrait was featured on American one-cent coins, the design on the coin was the Indian Head. The attractive design was created by James Longacre. Rumor has it that Longacre used his daughter's likeness for the face. They were minted in the millions from 1859 to 1909. Because so many were put into circulation, they are still relatively cheap to acquire from coin dealers.

Unassisted Triple Play This is the rarest feat in baseball: On May 12, 2008, second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera of the Cleveland Indians makes an unassisted triple play against the Toronto Blue Jays. It was only the 14th unassisted triple play in major league history. A Cleveland player had not achieved this feat in the regular season since 1909.

Mabel Normand Mabel Normand was probably the most successful comedienne of the silent screen era. Nobody know exactly when she was born. Sources list 1892, 1893, and 1895 as possible years for Mabel's birth. She started to appear in movies in 1909 and was one of Mack Sennett's bathing beauties. By 1913 Mabel was writing, directing, and starring in films. Like any good movie star, Mabel was involved in a few scandals. Sadly she died of tuberculosis in 1930 and is only well known to silent films buffs today.

Mark Twain at Home Silent film footage taken in 1909 by Thomas Edison at Stormfield (Redding)(CT) at Mark Twain's estate. Twain is shown walking around his home and playing cards with his daughters Clara and Jean. The flickering is due to film deterioration, but this is the only known footage of the great author.

Stanley Cup The coolest trophy in sports is the Stanley Cup. The Cup was originally the silver bowl that is atop the present trophy. It was purchased for about $50 by Lord Stanley of Preston, the Governor-General of Canada, and was intended to be awarded annually to the amateur hockey champions of Canada. It was first presented in 1893 to the Montreal Amateur Athletic Association club. Professional teams were openly allowed to compete for it starting in 1909. The National Hockey League took permanent possession of it in 1926. Over the years it's had its share of adventures and misadventures: The Stanley Cup has been used as a flower pot, dropkicked into Ottawa's Rideau Canal, left on a Montreal street corner, and used as an exotic dancer's prop in a New York City strip joint.

Forbes Field Picturesque Forbes Field was the home ballpark of the National League's Pittsburgh Pirates from 1909 to 1970. It was one of the first modern type ballparks made wholly of steel and concrete. It also was the first to have telephones in the press box and elevators. The first player to smack a home run over the double-decked right field grandstand was Babe Ruth in 1935. Undoubtedly the most famous home run in Forbes Field's history was socked by Bill Mazeroski to win the 1960 World Series. Every October 13, Pirate fans gather at the former site of Forbes Field (which has been absorbed by the University of Pittsburgh) to listen to the broadcast of that famous game on its anniversary. One strange fact about Forbes Field: Despite it being considered a pitcher's ballpark, a no-hitter was never thrown there.

Ty Cobb Steals Third Base This is a terrific action photo snapped by famed baseball photographer Charles Conlon that is nearly 100 years old! (Some sources date the photo to 1909; others claim it was taken in 1910.) Ty Cobb of the Detroit Tigers steals third base. Jimmy Austin of the Philadelphia Athletics is the third baseman. Austin was upended by Cobb's hard slide. Notice there's no uniform number on Austin's back. They did not come into vogue until the late 1920s.

Shibe Park Another one of baseball's famous stadiums that is no longer standing: Shibe Park in Philadelphia. Built in 1909, it was the home of the American League's Philadelphia Athletics until the team relocated to Kansas City in 1955. The park underwent one name change in its history. It was renamed Connie Mack Stadium to honor the longtime owner and manager of the A's. The National League's Phillies became the tenants after the A's left Philadelphia. It was their home ballpark until 1970.

Jack Johnson Vs Stanley Ketchel 1909 One of boxing's more interesting title fights: Reigning world middleweight champion Stanley Ketchel challenges reigning world heavyweight champion Jack Johnson in Colma, California on October 16, 1909. According to a prefight rumor, the bout was supposedly rigged. According to those supposedly 'in the know' the fighters arranged for Johnson to 'carry' the overmatched Ketchel for 12 rounds for the sake of the movie cameras. However, Ketchel double-crossed Johnson by knocking him down in the 12th round. An enraged Johnson got up and...

The Great Gazoo Partway through the final season of The Flintstones, a new character was added to the animated sitcom: The Great Gazoo. Gazoo was a tiny, green, floating alien who possessed magical powers. He was exiled to Earth from his home on planet Zatox as punishment for having invented a doomsday machine, a weapon of immense destructive power. Gazoo was discovered by Fred and Barney when his flying saucer crashed near Fred's car. Gazoo referred to Fred and Barney as 'dum-dums.' Gazoo secretly befriended Fred and Barney but constantly caused problems for them. Gazoo's name derived from the lyrics of a 1909 song, 'King of the Bungaloos,' by Charles Straight and Gene Greene. Harvey Korman provided The Great Gazoo's voice. Because Gazoo was introduced into The Flintstones midway through the sixth and final season (in the October 29, 1965 episode titled 'The Great Gazoo'), Gazoo's inclusion is often cited by fans of the show as the moment the series 'jumped the shark.' In total, The Great Gazoo appeared in 10 episodes of The Flintstones.
