1993 Phillies - No Missing Links

1993 Ultra #437, 1994 Pacific #481, 1994 Stadium Club Phillies #236 and 1993 Stadium Club Phillies #10
It was fun going through the 1992 Phillies roster and determining which players appeared on only a few (or no) Phillies cards, so I thought I'd do the same thing for the the 1993 club.  Amazingly enough, each of the 40 players who spent time with the team in 1993 eventually found their way on to a Phillies baseball card.  Unlike 1992, there wasn't much roster turn-over, so while it's impressive that the players listed below received a Phillies baseball card, it's not completely inconceivable.  I may continue this exercise for a few more years, but I would suspect the coverage ratio of Phillies players to players receiving Phillies baseball cards will drop significantly in the mid to late '90s.
