Spring Cleaning

So Kerry (Cards on Cards) was doing some spring cleaning and he offered a pick-a-team box of cards to people who sent him cards from his want list.  I sent him some 2020 Allen & Ginters for his set build and picked the Phillies for my return cards.  He sent a lot of cards, so let's just look at some highlights. 

 


    




-  A couple 1979 Topps of 1980 title team core contributors.  

-  1996 card of a key contributor from the 1993 pennant winners. 

-  Elite base stealer (2006).  

-  2013 Topps Archives of the GOAT

-  2013 Topps Chrome orange refractor

-  2014 Bowman blue parallel - SN500

-  Best sports mascot ever (2015).

-  2019 Allen & Ginter of the 4-time Cy Young Award winner

-  The Phanatic again (2019).

-  2020 Topps Fire of the Big Easy  

-  2020 Topps Opening Day

There were some Abreus and Burrells.  A few Utleys and Rhys Hoskinses.  A couple Thomes.  A Cole Hamels insert honoring his no-hitter at Wrigley.  So yeah - plenty of goodness.

  2. That 1980 Phillies team was loaded with memorable names: Rose, Trillo, Bowa, Schmidt, Smith, Maddox, McBride, Boone, McGraw, and Carlton.

    1. Yeah, I don't think it was a surprise when they won it.

      The '93 team would have been the opposite if they had gotten it done against Toronto.
