1969 Topps #229 Don Lock

Last night's game summary post coming soon . . . hopefully tomorrow.

Tonight's game summary post will be delayed due to the Phillies' inability to get a run home in the ninth with the bases loaded and one out.

And Jay Bruce makes me cranky.

Don Lock is not amused.

Lock is miffed because this is his 3rd season with the Phillies, and Topps still hasn't taken a photo of him in his Phillies' uniform!

Wow, I hadn't realized that this was the third straight card that Lock hadn't been properly shown in a Phillies uni. Even by their standards of the time (which is saying a lot), that was lazy work by Topps.

I'm sure you've read about it by now...but, what a crazy game! Danys Baez was amazing (I can't believe I wrote that)

I actually stayed up and watched the whole thing. By 11am this morning, I was on my third cup of coffee. But it was completely worth seeing Wilson Valdez shut the door on the Reds offense!
