There were some newer cards in Ron's package, along with some strange Roy Halladay action figure thing that's now perched on my son Doug's bureau**, but the highlight of the package were cards from 2005 that I had never seen before. In 2005, I was newly married and we were saving our pennies to buy a new house. There was little room in the budget for baseball cards which is why my 2005 Phillies binder is still the thinnest binder on my shelf.
Thanks again Ron and here's hoping the Phillies go easy on the Red Sox in the 2015 World S . . . oh forget it. See you in 2016. Or maybe 2017.
*Could be as early as next summer . . . we have trips in the works for this summer to Washington D.C. and Baltimore.
**What is this thing?
