I love this card. This card appeals to me as a Phillies fan, as a father, as a husband, as someone with a beard, and as someone who spends entirely too much time creating his own baseball cards.
Before starting this blog, I spent a lot of time surfing, reading, exploring and enjoying the baseball card blogs of others on the interwebs. Somehow, I stumbled upon Dave's Goose Joak blog and I spent several hours reviewing his custom creations from the past few months.
In January, Dave decided to launch his own original 2009 card set. You can read about the 2009 Goose Joak card set and the impetus behind the project here. You can enjoy the many Phillies cards appearing in the inaugural 2009 set here. Who would have thought my 2 favorite baseball card sets from 2009 would take their names from a few lucky dogs?
