I'm looking forward to doing these series preview posts in 2016 looking back at Phillies-related cards in the 1970 Topps set. I've already put together a list of former and future Phillies in the 1970 Topps set, and there were quite a few I wasn't familiar with. Just one more reason to look forward to the 2016 season!
