Sports Design Blog uncovers some remarkably entertaining 1970s-era MLB souvenir cups.  Tom Seaver is the Reds’ representative, which makes me think we’re talking 1979. 

The taglines on the cups are great.  Well, “Seaver never needs a reliever” is pretty lame, but how can you not love J.R. Richard’s:  “1st base looks far when you face J.R.”


Contest Time:  See if you can come up with the best tagline for a current Red (or a recent Red – I don’t want to eliminate Patterson- or Milton-themed submissions).

Prize:  A free bowl of soup.
