Dick Sisler, along with Del Ennis, were my Dad's two favorite Phillies players. Because of this, I'm slowly accumulating as many Sisler and Ennis cards as possible. Featured here isn't a card but a stamp from the 1949 Eureka Sportstamps set. 14,000 Phillies ran a post a few years agocontaining information on this set, along with a complete Phillies checklist.

My Dad would have absolutely loved the fact that his oldest grandson Doug is now officially a baseball card collector. Doug and I spent a lot of time talking about his Pop-Pop last night as it's three years today that he passed away. Doug and I looked at old pictures, listened to some of his Pop-Pop's favorite songs, and we talked about how his Pop-Pop and I used to collect baseball cards together, just like he and I are doing now.
Doug's Pop-Pop would have been so proud of him and his little brother, Ben. I know I am.
