2009 Chachi #26 Phillies Team/Charlie Manuel MG

Each year, the toughest card to complete for the Chachi set is the Phillies team card. It's just hard to find a good team picture anymore. For now, I'm using the 2008 Phillies team picture for this card until the 2009 team picture is taken and made available to fans. Fortunately, finding a picture of Charlie Manuel is much easier.

Charlie Manuel, manager
Phillies debut: Managed first Phillies game on April 4, 2005
Major League debut: April 8, 1969
Former teams: As a player - Minnesota Twins 1969-1972, Los Angeles Dodgers 1974-1975; As a manager - Cleveland Indians 2000-2002
2008 Postseason: Guided the Phillies to their second World Championship in franchise history.
