|2013 Topps Archvies #48|
1. Collect Phillies cards.
2. Collect all base 201X cards of any player appearing with the Phillies during 201X, even if his cards don't picture him with the Phillies.
In accordance with Jim's Phillies Collecting Rule™ #2, I added 2013 Topps Heritage cards of Ezequiel Carrera, John McDonald and Casper Wells to my Phillies collection, even though their cards picture those players with the Indians, Diamondbacks and Mariners, respectively.
My question to you, dear reader, is what should I do in the case of 2013 Ryne Sandberg cards? Sandberg is now the interim manager of the Phillies, and I have his two Phillies team issued cards already in my collection. However . . . Sandberg has also appeared on base cards in the following sets so far this year: Pinnacle, Topps Allen & Ginter, Topps Archives, Topps Gypsy Queen, Topps Museum Collection and Topps Tribute.
Do I add these non-Phillies cards to my Phillies collection, based solely on an interpretation of Jim's Phillies Collecting Rule™ #2? Or do I ignore these cards and carry on?
I anxiously await your input.
