Sticky Rickey

What happens when you combine The King of Steal with cheap, cool, oddballs produced three decades ago?  Well... see for yourself:

Are you not entertained?  Okay... so maybe puzzles aren't your thing.  How about a gold foil Rickey?

1983 Topps Stickers #103

Let me guess... not enough action.  Well say hello to my little friend...

1983 Topps Stickers #21

Who's on first?  Definitely not Rickey... that's for sure.  Seriously... if this action shot doesn't float your boat... then nothing will.

Hasta la vista, baby.  Happy Tuesday and sayonara!


  1. Rickey knows Rickey takes great pictures.

  2. The GREATEST leader-off hitter of all-time! If you don't think so just ask him he will tell you.

  3. mini rickey, foil rickey, puzzle rickey. that's just part of rickey being rickey.

    great pickups.

  4. Hey Fuji, that sticker is a shot of a play that has him stealing 2nd in an July '82 game I was at. He stole two and was caught twice, once at home. I yelled to Scott McGregor when Ricky broke for the plate. Thanks to me they got him.

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    1. That's awesome! Although... can't say I'm happy that you got Rickey out.

  5. My two greatest memories of Rickey are him being the 5000th strikeout of Nolan Ryan's career and Nolan throwing a no-hitter to steal a bit of Rickey's thunder on the day he broke the steals record.

    1. Two incredible milestones on one day = One of MLB's coolest days ever.
