I am not pleased at all with the photo I used for this card.

Susdorf had his contract selected from Lehigh Valley when Domonic Brown went on the seven-day concussion disabled list on July 25th.  He appeared in three games with the Phillies, going 1 for 7 and infamously dropping a fly ball in a particularly painful 12-4 loss to the Tigers on July 28th.  He was designated for assignment on July 30th, cleared waivers, and was outrighted back to Lehigh Valley.

His only Phillies game-action image available on the interwebs pictures Susdorf's error, and I wasn't about to use that shot for the guy's Chachi card debut.  So we have the hatless portrait here, which could be replaced if and when a better Susdorf photo surfaces.
