Pitchers and Catchers Report to Clearwater in One Month (cc: @TheSnortingBull)


We're exactly one month away from the official start of spring training, and I thought I'd check in with the Phillies offseason moves so far.  Before we get to that, and thanks to the suggestion of fellow collector and blogger Snorting Bull, here's a Steve Geltz/Steve Jeltz combo card that had to happen.  Geltz is a Phillies non-roster invitee and a Durham Bulls alumni.

Back on December 18th, I completely missed the news that Hyun Soo Kim had signed a four-year $10.58 million contract with the LG Twins of the Korea Baseball Organization.  Kim came to the Phillies in late July in the Jeremy Hellickson deal with the Orioles.  Unless he appears in some early season Topps releases with the Phillies, his one and only Phillies baseball card can be found within the limited, late season, team-issued photo card update set.

Trio of Kevins Joins Broadcast Booth

1994 Fleer #601
 
2001 Topps #172
 
2012 Choice International
League All-Stars #19
During the Phillies Broadcaster Golden Age between 1977 and 1997, the core broadcasting team consisted of Harry Kalas, Richie Ashburn, Andy Musser and Chris Wheeler.  There were some supporting players that came and went during that time, but the core four were the primary voices of the Phillies.  I miss listening to Harry and Whitey call a game, and no one will ever replace them (in my opinion).

In recent years, I've thoroughly enjoyed the radio broadcast tandem of Scott Franzke and Larry Andersen and those two have worked together since 2006.  My wife Jenna fully supports the nightly ritual of me muting the TV and turning up the radio so that we can listen to Franzke and L.A. call the game.  With Andersen announcing he'll no longer travel for road games in 2018, a replacement was needed to give Franzke a new partner.  The Phillies will fill Andersen's void with three former players - Kevin Frandsen, Kevin Jordan and Kevin Stocker - and I can't help but feel the broadcast booth is getting way too crowded at this point.

If you're keeping score at home, here's the Phillies broadcasters' line-up for the 2018 season that now includes 11 (!) voices.

Television
Play-by-play - Tom McCarthy
Color commentary - Ben Davis and John Kruk (although not always together)
Color commentary, home weekends - Mike Schmidt
Roving reporter/occasional fill-in for play-by-play - Gregg Murphy

Radio
Play-by-play - Scott Franzke
Play-by-play, middle innings - Jim Jackson
Color commentary, home games - Larry Andersen
Color commentary, road games - Kevin Frandsen, Kevin Jordan and Kevin Stocker

1887-1909 Phillies Want List

1909-11 T206 Doolin (portrait)
Yes, this want list is absurd.

But having recently gone through the exercise of putting together want lists for the 1910s, 1920s and 1930s, I thought I'd finish off the universe of Phillies baseball cards by starting at the beginning.  I don't expect to visit or update this post all that often, but here we go.  If nothing else, this may be a good source for reprint cards needed.  I would think this list is incomplete and I'll add to it as needed.

1910-1919 Phillies Want List

2005 Topps Turkey Red #14
In February 2012, I started drafting a post to serve as a want list of Phillies baseball cards issued before 1930.  I wrote then, "About a half hour into this exercise, I concluded that what I was doing was ridiculous."  At the time, I owned one Phillies baseball card from before the 1930s - the 1911 T205 Gold Border Chas S. Dooin card.  As of this writing, I've added three more cards from the 1911 T205 set.

Over the past six years, I've found myself at baseball card shows, looking at displays of old Phillies baseball cards that are (relatively) reasonably priced and thinking, "I might actually own that card one day."  If all goes according to plan, I'd like to cross one of these cards off my want list each year.  This list is most likely not complete, and I'll revise/add as I become aware of additional cards.

1910 Smith's Mellow-Mint (E105) - Dooin, Doolan, Harsel, Jacklitsch, Knabe, Magee
1910 E98 Set of 30 - #20 Dooin

1930-1939 Phillies Want List

1933 Goudey #210
1936 Goudey #5
1934-36 Diamond Stars #80
In April 2012, I published a 1930-1939 Phillies Have List, indicating that I had 12 Phillies cards from the 1930s and "if and when this list ever grows, I'll put together a proper want list."

Five and a half years later, the time for that proper want list has arrived, as I've now accumulated 36 Phillies baseball cards, postcards and matchbooks from the decade of the Great Depression.  Here's a listing of the Phillies cards from the 1930s already in my collection, and cards I hope to one day add.

Happy New Year!

2017 Chachi #66

What a weird year . . .

I've never watched, read or paid attention to the news as much as I did this year.  Yet I feel more confused and negative than other years, when I paid much less attention.

Here's to a hopeful 2018.  The checklist for 2017 is complete and a new, blank checklist is ready to go for 2018.  As you're checking off the boxes on your 2018 checklist, I hope you're healthy and happy.  Stay positive, keep helping others and be kind.

* * *

And here's a bonus final card from the 2017 Chachi set.  I was planning on a final 2017 Phillies year in review post, but I'd rather look forward than backward at this point.  Pitchers and catchers report to Clearwater in about 45 days.  Go Phils!

2017 Chachi Team Logo Stickers

Here's a look at the 30 team logo stickers found this year within specially-marked, retail only Chachi cello packs.  Most of these have already been published on this blog at the top of series preview posts.  Similar to what I did last year, I've decided to display the logos by division in the order of each team's finish.

The 2018 Chachi Planning Committee has not yet committed to creating a special set of team logo stickers next year, but the Committee reserves the right to change its mind.
