    ^ I could name 95% of those players without hesitation. I couldn't name five MLB All-Stars from this year. Things change.

    Here is the 1977 All-Star Game held at Yankees' Stadium. The reaction change from Rose to Seaver was possibly without equal in such a venue. Seaver, who I would guess is to the far left second row in that photo (cut off, behind Ron Cey) had been traded a few weeks prior by the Mets. Ken Griffey does not appear in that photo. The little known Gossage and Winfield to Yankees' fans at the time, too.

    And the mention of the Pirates' cap above. Dave Parker wearing the black-and-yellow.

    The "Tams" were owned by Charlie Finley who owned the NHL Seals and baseball's A's at the time. The color scheme was consistent. The name was an acronym for the tri-state area of Tennessee-Arkansas-Mississippi. At least they were wise enough not to lead with Mississippi and ended with Tennessee. 'Mats would have been a dismal option. Or they could have foreseen the future and gone the ATM route. Then again, "the" in the team name on those sheets set the franchise apart in a way, too.

    Bobby Clarke and Pete Rose. Many of the players associated with those teams in the 1970s. Throw in Affirmed as my favorite race horse at the time.

    I'd add Kareem, and Mark Spitz, into the mix.

    Oops. I misread "best" for "favorite." Certainly changes the response which will be offered by me at another time.

    This is one of those "A picture is worth a thousand words" moments or maybe three thousand in this case.
