1973 Topps #271 Tom Hutton

Throughout the mid-'70s, Tommy Hutton was the Phillies' back-up first baseman. He played in 653 games for the Phils, batting .253.

This is my favorite Phillies card of Tommy's because it shows the old color scheme for the different levels of seating at Veterans Stadium. (Back in the early '70s, this seemed like a wonderful idea).

Tommy is in his 28th year of broadcasting, the last 12 years spent as a broadcaster with the Marlins.

Did you know?:
Tommy is married to Dick Ruthven's twin sister Debby.

Hard to believe that Hutton has been broadcasting 28 years...I remember him as a kid
