About Me: Became a huge Sox fan after moving to Portland, Maine in 1970 and following the trade of my boyhood idol, Tommy Harper to the Red Sox. Tears of heartbreak turned to tears of joy. Go Sox!

    Nice!  5 in the top 70.

    This after just graduating Betts, Bogey, Vazquez and JBJ.

    My guess is Johnson is close to #100.
