The Phoenix Suns of the National Basketball Association (NBA) had their inaugural season in 1968. Their radio play-by-play announcer Al McCoy, commonly dubbed as the Voice of the Phoenix Suns, has been with the team since 1972, which makes him the longest tenured NBA broadcaster.
McCoy began his broadcasting career in Webster City, Iowa during his freshman year at Drake University in 1951 covering the college basketball games. He then moved to Arizona in 1958.
While in Arizona, prior to his job with the Suns, McCoy did play-by-play for the Phoenix Giants, a Triple A affiliate of the Major League Baseball team San Francisco Giants. He also covered college football and basketball for Arizona State University and the Phoenix Roadrunners hockey team.
Al McCoy just finished his 47th season with the Suns and has expressed that he will only retire when it stops being fun.

Wacky packages are a Topps product that came out in 1973 with the first modern set. There are just a bizarre set of cards that are parodies of famous brands.
The Beginning of Wacky Packages
In September of 1961 a man by the name of Paul Laikini illustrated an article on Camel cigarettes in issue #21 of Cracked Magazine. It showed a picture of an upside down camel named after the egyptian president Gamel. Fast forward 6 years to 1967 when Art Spiegelman drew the first wacky packages, and so begins a trend deliberated by millions of children everywhere.
The First Set of Modern Wacky Packs Cards
In Spring of 1973 the first set of Wacky Packages cards came out. The peel and stick cards came out with a set of 30 to collect. Some were rarer than other because some of the cards only printed one per sheet while others printed 6 per sheet.
Wacky packages changed mostly stayed there until 2016 when MLB wacky series came out one example is Arizona diamondbacks.
The Wacky Packages in my opinion is they are funny stupid and entertaining. Here are some of my favorites is highlight to Thanksgiving being in just a few days I have a surprise image for you.
