I'm steadily chipping away at my complete run of Topps Phillies team sets dating back to 1951 and the card featured here was the last card needed to complete my 30-card team set from the 1968 Topps offering. If you're unfamiliar with this set, I'll wait here while you check out the highly recommended 1968 Topps Baseball blog. When you're back, you can also click over to my post from a few years ago detailing the Phillies cards in the 1968 Topps set.
Now that I have the 1968 Topps Phillies team set out of the way, I'm going to turn my attention to the 1965, 1966 and 1967 Topps Phillies team sets. The cards I still need can be found here.
This Phillies team card was one of the six cards I received from my Mom for Christmas. I'm working my way backward, starting with the 1998 Upper Deck Scott Rolen card I posted a few days ago. When I get another break in the action from playing with my two sons and all their new Christmas presents, I'll post the next card from the mini-haul.
