I saw these in a store window in the Chelsea neighborhood of NYC recently. I had always known them as Russian “nesting dolls,” but didn’t realize that the proper name for them is “matryoshka dolls.” Can you ID any of these guys, and figure out who they are? I assume #24 for the Nets is actually former Net Richard Jefferson, because it doesn’t really look like current Net #24 Kris Joseph. The baseball player for the Diamondbacks looks like Randy Johnson. The Oilers guy? Doesn’t look like the most-famous Oiler Wayne Gretzky, maybe it’s Mark Messier – what do you think?
