1995, Newsday's Jon Heyman has a feature, titled Baseball Homecoming, that provides the first published reference to 'Manny Being Manny.' In the article, Indians manager Mike Hargrove used the 'Manny Being Manny' quote in reference to the antics of one of the most popular newcomers to the team, Manny Ramirez. Ramirez would continue to add to this namesake phrase over the course of his career with shenanigans, intentional or not, that kept the folklore alive!
The card feature as the main image above, was issued by Topps as part of their Tales of the Game insert set in 2010 Topps Series 1.
