I'm still processing all of this, and trying to figure out exactly how I want to pay tribute to Rollins and his time in Philadelphia.
Back in the 1980s, when the Phillies were paying tribute to a retired star, they'd issue a poster or a print of that star framed by his Topps baseball cards throughout his career. They did this for Tug McGraw, Mike Schmidt and Richie Ashburn. I'd like to see them do something similar for Rollins when the day comes for him to announce his retirement. In the meantime, here's a gallery of Rollins' base Topps cards as my small tribute to the franchise's all-time hits leader and the greatest shortstop in team history.
