Collection: Preacher Roe Fleer Greats

Following up on my post from earlier this week featuring a 2000 Fleer Greats of the Game autographed card, I come back today with another Preacher Roe card.  This time it's a 2004 Fleer Greats autographed card. 

Did you know that there is a Preacher Roe website?  See it here. I found that out last night as I did just a little bit of research for this post.  I figured I would see if I could find some choice quotes for a man not considered to be at a loss for words.  Fortunately, his website did not disappoint.  Check out what I found below:

This is probably his most famous of quotes-
"I've got three pitches, my change, my change off my change, and my change off my change off my change."
This one just made me laugh-
"One day in a tough game I was passing Lonnie Warneke and he said, 'Preach, I may have my superiors on the bases, but when it comes to balls and strikes, I'm second to no man.' And I commenced thinking careful and when I was done I told him, 'Horse@#, Lon.'"
