Here's the First @PatNeshek (Unofficial) Phillies Card!

2017 Chachi New Additions #1
I get inordinately excited whenever the Phillies make offseason player moves, and the first acquisition of the 2016-2017 offseason was announced yesterday.  The Phillies acquired reliever, and fellow baseball card collector, Pat Neshek from the Houston Astros for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

An All-Star in 2014, Neshek has pitched for 10 seasons with the Twins, Padres, Athletics, Cardinals and Astros.  His most recent mainstream baseball cards can be found within the 2016 Topps flagship and 2016 Topps Heritage sets.  Neshek will have to find a new number for 2017, as the #37 he wore with the Astros is currently occupied by Odubel Herrera.

He's the first card in the 2017 Chachi New Additions set, and I've added him to the Phillies Virtual Wall, which now stands at 32 players.  Presented below is an updated listing of those players who have either joined or left the organization.

When I saw that the Phillies got Pat Neshek, my first reaction was that I had my first subject to photoshop into a new uniform. You beat me to the punch custom-wise, but from looking at this "New Additions" card and also looking at your Phillies Virtual Wall, I can tell that 2017 is going to be a great year for Chachi International!

Thank you!

And I'd still love to see Neshek photoshopped into his new uni. That's definitely TSR World HQ specialty!
