1956 Topps #337 Bobby Morgan

And that brings us to Bobby Morgan, the last Phillies card in the 1956 Topps set. I somehow managed to purchase this card in January 1999 from a baseball card show in Raleigh, NC.

A former Brooklyn Dodger, Bobby played with the Phillies in 1954, 1955, part of 1956 and part of 1957. In May 1956, he was traded to the St. Louis Cardinals for Solly Hemus. However, the Phillies re-acquired Bobby in November 1956 in the trade that sent Del Ennis to the Cardinals.

There you have it . . . the 1956 Topps Phillies team set. (Thanks Dad. We did it.)

What team will be featured next on The Phillies Room blog? There's not much time left to vote!
