15. Pistol Pete Maravich's Floppy Gray Socks

Debuted: 1966
Famed Appearance: On the court for the LSU Tigers

Everyone described pistol Pete Maravich the same way, from his coaches, to gawking fans in the stands: “that skinny guy with the mop top and floppy gray socks can play ball!” There's even a children's book you can purchase called Floppy Socks and Moppy Hair. Never in the history of sports has the lack of elasticity elicited such a lasting memory.
