1967 Topps #326 Bob Uecker

This card is a recent win from eBay. I highlighted some of the ex-Phillies now with the Brewers a few weeks ago, and I was shocked and dismayed to learn I did not have a Bob Uecker Phillies card in my collection.

That problem has now been solved.

"Mr. Baseball" played with the Phillies from 1966 until his trade to the Atlanta Braves in June 1967. In 96 games with the Phils, as a back-up catcher, Bob hit .202 with 7 home runs. Fortunately for him, Bob has found much more success as an actor and broadcaster. In 2003, Bob was elected into the broadcasters' wing of the Hall of Fame.
