1976 SSPC Phillies - Part One

If you've been following along with The Shlabotnik Report, and you should be, you know there was a recent report of a 1,200-card haul of wonderful 1976 SSPC cards.  I hadn't planned on featuring the 1976 SSPC Phillies team set during Gallery Week, but his posts on the set inspired me to dig out my 1970s Phillies binder and take in the glory of these little known cards once again.  (I hope this doesn't steal TSR's thunder for any future posts.)

Jim Kaat is a member of the White Sox on the front of his card, but the back of his card lists him as a Phillie and mentions his acquisition on December 10, 1975.

#136 Jim Kaat
#456 Joe Hoerner
#457 Tug McGraw
#458 Gene Garber

#460 Larry Christenson
#461 Tom Underwood
#462 Jim Lonborg
#463 Jay Johnstone
#464 Larry Bowa

#465 Dave Cash
#466 Ollie Brown
#467 Greg Luzinski
#468 Johnny Oates
#469 Mike Anderson

Jim (in absentia), thank you, I appreciate the kind words and the links!

Don't worry about stealing my thunder, because there are *ahem* extenuating circumstances involved, which I'll share with everyone once I get a chance to write it all out.

Love the Joe Hoerner card, I think that one stands a pretty good chance of being unique.

These are great cards. I am sure I have some in my Yankees collection. Between this post and the ones over at the Shlabotnikreport, I now want to hunt down a complete Yankees team set.
