Billy Ripken Baseball Card Obscenity Fleer's 1989 baseball card of Billy Ripken of the Baltimore Orioles had an unusual feature: an obscenity on the handle of his bat. For years Ripken blamed a playful teammate for scribbling the naughty message on his bat just before the photo was taken. In 2009 Ripken fessed up, saying he had written the message on his batting practice bat to distinguish it from his game bats. He had just finished taking BP at Fenway Park when the Fleer photographer snapped this photo. When this error became public knowledge, Fleer reissued Ripken's card several different times, with the offending message blacked out or obscured in a different manner. Predictably, the original 'error card' is much in demand by collectors.

Ron Luciano Remember flamboyant American League baseball umpire Ron Luciano? During the 1970s he was the sport's most colorful arbiter. To relieve the tedium during dull games, Luciano would call runners out by pumping his fist numerous times. He would chat and joke with players, pat them on the back when they did well, and engage in bits of mischief. He had a long-running feud with Baltimore Orioles' manager Earl Weaver, whom he once ejected from both ends of a doubleheader. When Luciano quit umpiring to become a baseball broadcaster for NBC in 1980, Weaver said, 'I hope he takes this job more seriously than he took his last one.' Luciano authored five books of baseball anecdotes that were well received. So it came as a shock to the baseball community when the good-natured and well-liked Luciano inexplicably took hs own life in January 1995 at his home in Endicott, NY. He was 57. He left a suicide note containing detailed funeral instructions, but gave no reason for why he had decided to kill himself.

George Blanda passes at age 83 George Blanda, the ageless Hall of Fame quarterback and kicker with the Oakland Raiders, has died. He was 83. The Raiders confirmed the death Monday and issued a statement saying "we are deeply saddened by the passing of the great George Blanda. George was a brave Raider and a close personal friend of Raiders owner Al Davis." Blanda retired a month shy of his 49th birthday before the 1976 season, playing longer than anyone else in pro football history. He spent 10 seasons with the Chicago Bears, part of one with the Baltimore Colts, seven with the Houston Oilers and his final nine with the Raiders. He scored 2,002 points in his career, a pro football record at the time of his retirement, kicking 335 field goals and 943 extra points, running for nine touchdowns and throwing for 236 more.

Raymond Berry on Whats My Line Raymond Berry of the Baltimore Colts, a future NFL Hall-Of-Famer, was a regular contestant on the November 9, 1958 episode of What's My Line. Berry's team had just lost that day to the New York Giants. About a month later the Colts and Giants would famously meet again at Yankee Stadium in the 1958 NFL championship game--which the Colts would win in overtime. Many football historians claim that particular game made the NFL a big-time venture.

Chubby - Our Gang In 1929 Norman (Chubbby) Chaney replaced Joe Cobb as the resident fat boy in the popular Hal Roach-produced Our Gang comedies when they went from silents to talkies. Chaney was supposed to be 11 years old at the time, but later research revealed he was actually born in 1914 rather than 1918. (The 1920 Baltimore census lists him as a six-year-old.) Chaney made 19 Our Gang shorts through 1931 after which his contract was not renewed. He never acted again. Suffering from a glandular condition, Chaney never grew beyond 4'11". His weight ballooned to over 300 pounds. In 1935 he underwent a corrective surgical procedure which decreased his weight to less than 140 pounds. His health was severely affected, though. Chaney died from myocarditis in 1936 at the age of 21. For 76 years Chaney was buried in an unmarked pauper's grave in a Baltimore cemetery--until fans raised $4000 for a granite headstone in 2012.
