"Ryne could throw the heck out of the ball. He threw fear into some hitters. I remember he had several pairs of glasses but it didn't seem like he saw good in any of them." - Yogi Berra

I don't think I own one but I've always liked his 1963 Topps card. The dark glasses give the impression of a blind man. That's reassuring to a hitter.
