1978 Topps #401
I was saddened to read about the passing of Sparky Anderson today. Sparky seemed like a good guy and he will be missed.
A few Sparky Anderson quotes:
- "People who live in the past generally are afraid to compete in the present. I've got my faults, but living in the past is not one of them. There's no future in it."
- "Baseball is a simple game. If you have good players and if you keep them in the right frame of mind then the manager is a success."
- "The great thing about baseball is when you're done, you'll only tell your grandchildren the good things. If they ask me about 1989, I'll tell them I had amnesia."
