1979 Burger King Phillies #12 Doug Bird

A busy work schedule and a quick weekend trip to Pittsburgh have contributed to my inability to complete the 1979 Topps Phillies post in time for publishing this morning.

However, Doug Bird is still smiling in spite of his crazy beard and airbrushed Phillies cap.  He knows the 1979 Topps Phillies post will run soon enough.  (This card always freaked me out a little as a kid.)

Go Phils!

What happened to the Phillies in 1979? They really crashed and burned that year (although they bounced back well the following year).

Maybe it just took them a year to get used to Pete Rose?
