Here's a quote that always makes me smile:

"That's $27.50, and I'm not done yet!"

Who said it, why was he upset, and what exactly was it that cost $27.50? :-)

(Note: Different sources disagree on the exact wording of the quote.)

Luke Appling... fouled off 10 straight pitches during the depression, and the balls were $2.75 each back then.

Nice one, kimchi!
