1982 Topps #P5 Julio Franco

Another original creation . . .

Julio Franco played in 16 games for the 1982 Phillies, and went on to play for 22 additional seasons in the Majors. Julio, along with Jay Baller, Manny Trillo, George Vukovich and Jerry Willard, was traded to the Cleveland Indians in December 1982 for Von Hayes, old 5-for-1.

Julio appeared in a Phillies uniform in the 1983 Donruss set, but he never had an official Topps Phillies card. I used Julio's picture from the 1982 Phillies Yearbook for this card.
