VIntage Cards from Jim from Downingtown: A Long Overdue Trade Post

You know, sometimes you get cards and you can't recall how exactly how you stumbled upon them or bought them for? And then there are others that you can picture with such clarity that you recall the color of your socks, where you were, and how much you paid for the cards?

In this new-fangled world of trade by mail,  an assortment of vintage cards must assuredly come from Jim from Downingtown.  (Notice the link goes to his profile; there are so many blogs).

Getting cards from the 60s in the mail is probably the 3rd best card collecting feeling in the world after getting an autograph of your favorite player and ripping open 20 cases of cards in less than 3 nights (not that I've ever done that.)
1964 Topps Dick Williams:  You might better remember Dick Williams as the HOF manager with the killer sunglasses, but here he is finishing out his playing career in Boston.
1966 Topps Lew Krausse: The first card from a team name that doesn't exist, the Kansas City Athletics.  The young prospect was gearing up for his career year in 1966.
1965 Topps Turk Farrell: It's a Colt 45s card!  Now that's a team nickname that didn't last very long or easy to announce.  Farrell started and ended his career with the Phillies, but was a 3 time all star in Houston.
1964 Philadelphia Norm Snead: This is weird, this is a football card posted on this site. It's from a company called Philadelphia, which made football cards in the '60s.  Here he is, at the beginning of his Eagles career. He had over 30000 yards passing and is still 6th all time in interceptions.
1966 Topps Dave Mcnally: He was one of the famed quartet of the 1971 Orioles, which each won 20 games during the season.  That might never happen again until the bullpen becomes someplace where less pitchers hang out.
1963 Topps Dal Maxvill: We're both alumni of the same college, but he got to play with Stan Musial and I did not.

And then to top it off, there were a few 1968 game cards, which gave me the first Mantle card from his playing days I had ever owned (another followed, which will be the subject of another post at some point).  Check out the glory of the Mick, Yaz, and Hammerin' Hank.  (plus I would have a 1.000 OBP in this game and always win because I would never get an out).

Thanks to Jim!

More 2012 Leaf Memories: Autographs and Airbrushing

Irrationality is a fun little way to conduct operations.  Why do we like certain cards or sets?  Why do we become obsessed in pursuit?  It is a good thing that I can't afford to buy all the sets that I want. Otherwise, all that would be seen is a hand flailing under a flood of cards like those cartoons of characters sinking into lava reaching for the air.....

As time passes, I realize that my card collecting is not so much as a steady trickle of cards as a series of floods punctuated by obsessions.  2012 Leaf Memories was one such of these obsessions.  For some reason, the design sparked an innate urge to get them all.....spoiler, I failed at that.

The reason is because Puig Fever swept the nation, and the price skyrocketed to the point where this became infeasible.  The "additional" base cards, numbered 529 and above were split between rookies and retired players, with all of them numbered to 99.  Prospect names that still resonate three years later include Addison Russell, Byron Buxton, Carlos Correa, Joey Gallo, and, of course, Yasiel Puig.

The retired players portion of the checklist was much easier to track down. Notice that there are blank uniforms and varying pictures of era and tone.
Bob Gibson pitching in what looks like to be against Boston, which may mean this is a photo from the 1967 World Series.
Albert Pujols is modeling his new Angels duds for the first year of his career transition.

Reggie Jackson  during his postseason mashing prime.

Jim Bunning going with the Tigers uniform of his youth.
Whitey Ford with a knowing look that the batter has no chance on this one.

There were also two principal auto types in the set; one was essentially reprints of these high numbered cards, usually with a sticker auto and numbered to 25, and the other was buybacks from the 1990 Leaf set, which were then signed on-card and numbered to the player's uniform number in most cases.  I tried to snag a few and successfully pulled out a couple of Hall of Famers.
Dennis Eckersley is strangely not throwing sidearm in this card from his playing days.  This was from his peak of his powers when the A's were riding high after winning the World Series and sporting a crazy 55:3 K:BB ratio.
Red Schoendienst was both a HOF second baseman and a pennant-winning manager with the Cardinals.    He won two World Series as a player....and this was a surprise for me, with the Milwaukee Braves.  It's appropriate that he has this 1990 designed card since his last managing stint was as an interim manager after replacing Whitey Herzog in the 1990 season.

2012 Leaf Memories is a set that surprisingly maintains a hold on me still even though I have very few actual 1990 Leaf cards....the collecting mind is funny sometimes.

Introducing the Once and Future Franco

Written while pondering this 2013 Bowman Platinum autograph in my hand......

Presented for your consideration, the latest addition to the Phillies major league roster, Maikel Franco.  Coming from the humble land of the Iron Pig, in which his power could not hold anymore, he traversed across the Poconos and braved the treacherous path known as the Turnpike to join the fraternity of the major league baseball team.

Though the journey was short, the realization for growth was immense.  The bats of yesteryear would not serve in this new setting.  A better bat and a glove earned from the BR shrine of thirdbasemen would be the tools with which the young arrival would make himself known.

He had heard tales of the squalor of this land, a team whose talent had been overwhelmed by the spirit of the sacrifice bunt.  A place where saves were few and far between as the offensive ledger remained dormant through the early spring, unable to awaken.

So Maikel Franco steeled himself against such stories, admitting to himself that the stories were only of the present.  He would have to succeed to help bring this team back into its former splendor of legend and have  a second golden age emerge in a fair and just land.

He would have the mentorship of some remaining members of that era, those whose presence was a constant reminder of what was. Though their bats had slowed and their knees have tightened, they fight on with resolve to help the next generation lay this hopeful foundation.

Upon arrival, he felt confident in his abilities and took his place next to the hot corner.  This is a place where the two previous residents had lost the wherewithal to move laterally as they sank deeper into the surrounding swamp.  The ball and glove will have to be as one so he does not succumb to the same malady.

Three days have now passed since he reached his destination.  The team, infused with the bubbling excitement from their home supporters, succeeded in every way, defeating the threatening desert snakes.  Maikel Franco joined the rhythm of the celebration, contributing a triple, home run, and both steady and spectacular plays in the field.

The first leg of the journey was a success, but what lies ahead is the perils of the roads not traveled.  He knows he must prove his worth at each destination, and so it goes as the journey at this level continues.

Spring Cleaning 2015: Come and Claim Some Cards


I cleaned out a couple boxes that I felt didn't fit my collection, so somebody gets to claim these cards.  I am not organized to mail out several packages, so I've decided to organize these cards by division.  Each of those stacks is the cards from each of the divisions, so that's what I'm offering first.  I'm not sure how many cards there are per stack....I guess it looks like 200 or so.  It's a mix of many sets, and there definitely will be duplicates in the stack.  Some sets I remember a lot of cards of are 1999 Bowman, 2002 Bowman, 2003 Bowman, 1991 Stadium Club, and 2011 Topps.

Anyway, please claim a division.....individual teams are not yet up.  If you claim a division, there will be a bonus of some kind, feel free to forward me a want list or name a favorite team; my collection isn't that comprehensive, but I'll find something.

 Claim with a comment or email.

NL East (there are less Phillies in this stack for obvious reasons)-CLAIMED

The First 10% of 2015 or Is There Hope? (Phillies Edition)

I read something fairly depressing today at The Good Phight.  The Phillies, as a team, are hitting like Steve Jeltz.  For those of you don't keep track of light-hitting shortstops of yesteryear, he was the Phillies shortstop from 1985-1989 (more or less).  His best single season OPS was .694.  He once had a season (in 148 games) with a slugging percentage of .237.  He is now remembered for three things: his hairstyle, being born in France, and hitting a home run from each side of the plate in this crazy game in 1989.  I listened to that one on the radio since the game was probably aired on  the cable station Prism and therefore, inaccessible.

This brings us back to today's version of the Phillies....their lineup is bad and has only a slight possibility of getting better.  Their starting pitching has a duct-taped rotation and is performing reasonably well, which may or may not continue.  Their bullpen is also adequate with some breakout potential.  Unfortunately, baseball is a game of wins and losses predicated on run differentials...it is hard to win if you hardly ever outscore the opponent.  It is very difficult to rely on a 1-0 or 2-1 result every evening.  It's also hard to hit under .200 for the season with runners in scoring position, though it seems like they're going to try.

(On a side note, for all this stressing about fundamental baseball, I have not seen sloppier play on both sides of the ball in years....it looks like there's a cloud above this team, and not the cumulus kind.  It's one of those mind sucking clouds that bombards you with trivia while you go about your daily business, and then threatens to zap you if you get a question wrong....that must be it, their bodies are threatened from the astral plane and are unable to concentrate on catching the ball or deadening the bat to put a bunt down.....)

It might sound like there's no hope, but there always is.....until Memorial Day at least for this fan.  And then again until July 4....ok, I will hope until Labor Day.....irrational dreaming and all that.

Let's see what could happen with some of the major players on the team this year.  Since we're 10% of the way through the season (give or take), it's easy projection from this point out because we all know a baseball season and player performance is completely linear and will never, ever deviate from that path that started on Opening Day (not true).
Ryan Howard: 
Current Status: First baseman of record and symbol of the decline of all civilization. .526 OPS, 1 home run, 5:1 K:BB ratio.
Future Linear Projection: 10 home runs, 40 RBIs, too many Ks.
To Change the Future: Must become a platoon player at this stage of his career, though his batting splits from last year until now are worrisome. Also, breathe-right strips, lots and lots of those.
On the Card Side: This card is awesome!  I love 2012 National Treasures!  That's my next thesis topic.
Cole Hamels: 
Current Status: Embattled ace who caught a mini home run bug, needs to seek the old man by the fire in Legend of Zelda to be cured. 0-2 with 3.75 ERA, 8.63 K/9
Future Linear Projection: 0-20 with 230 K in 240 innings
To Change the Future: Pitch as you always have this year, besides W-L record, the rest can turn....also invest in cloud seeding to lower atmospheric pressure.
On the Card Side: This card is from the first set of Topps Tier One, 2011.  It is so memorable I spent the last three minutes looking up which year it was from.
Ben Revere: 
Current Status: Left fielder who makes cameos in center. Had one great outfield assist this year, matching a pre-arranged quota with the telecom industry. .472 OPS, 4 SB and 3 3B 
Future Linear Projection: .172 BA, 40 SB, 30 3B, and 60 R.
To Change the Future: Must bat in leadoff and start shoulder strengthening exercises.  Can only hit slow rollers to 3rd base to artificially inflate batting average
On the Card Side: This is a 2007 Tristar Prospects Plus auto back when he was just drafted.  It's interesting that he was one of the players from the set that made the majors.
Chase Utley: 
Current Status: 2nd baseman slumping due to the presence of the cursed necklace of Antioch. .450 OPS, 2 HR, 9 RBI
Future Linear Projection: 4 home runs, 36 RBIs, a lot of grit.
To Change the Future: He needs to rest every 5th game at this point in his career and also block out the distractions of losing.  He must channel every utterance of "Chase Utley is the man" by a fan or announcer into a double or turned double play.
On the Card Side: 2012 Bowman Ice sparked a parallel revolution in the Bowman line, portending the wave and bubble editions.  I was lucky to pull this out of a blaster.  Notice there was no necklace in this photo.
Carlos Ruiz: 
Current Status: Catcher of pitches and framer of strikes.  .482 OPS, 0 HR, 1 RBI.
Future Linear Projection: 0 home runs, 10 RBIs, 1 extra base hit by luck.
To Change the Future: Must visit the Louvre this year to practice proper framing and also needs to make more solid contact, line drive percentage is a thing.
On the Card Side: This card is from one of those confusing issues of the mid-2000s.  First look, it's a 2006 Upper Deck purple parallel....first look at a checklist says no, there are no purple parallels.  Instead it's 2006 Upper Deck Special F/X, which is a 1000 card counterpart to 2006 Upper Deck! Like Topps Chrome except impossible to collect.

Well, that was more depressing than I intended.  I should try to say something positive.....Cut the camera, it's time for a bagel.

Memories......Leaf Memories

"Memories, light the corners of my mind; misty water color memories of the way we were"



It's unfortunate that the Phillies have a look of the teams from my childhood. The 1988-1990 Phillies were not that pleasant a team to watch, but don't tell that to the younger me.  There were highlights and Leaf took it upon itself to recreate the memories of this team by foil stamping the cards from 1990 Leaf for its 2012 Leaf Memories set.

Don't get me wrong, as with any season, there are reasons to remember.  I think I got excited when Don Carman didn't walk a batter in an inning and when Juan Samuel hit a triple.

Looking back at the cards, it's remarkable how poorly that logo ages.  I do miss the maroon hats sometimes, even though the day game uniforms today trump almost any of the looks that they've had over the years.

In time, we will look back at the names of Galvis, Herrera, Buchanan, Rupp as they were in their most favorable time as a Phillie, which probably (and hopefully) isn't 2015....because that would mean improvement.  It would also mean some shrewd moves by the future front office (for example, turning Chris James into John Kruk).

In terms of the various foil stamping, silver means /20, gold means /5, and red means /1.....because it can.  I think I'm missing three cards to have at least one version of the team set; the curse of being a completist continues.  (This must be some type of AMA certified illness).

Let's see what the dark corners of my mind dig out when glancing at these balanced inspired and dreary memories.
Steve Lake was the backup catcher for a few seasons in there.  He mostly played on weekends probably, so I didn't catch many of his game performances.  Closest comp to the 2015 roster: Cameron Rupp
Carmelo Martinez was only the team for half a season.  I think I remember him hitting a grand slam as a Phillie.  Closest comp to the 2015 roster:  Jeff Francoeur
Terry Mulholland pitched the first ever no-hitter by a Phillie at Veterans Stadium on August 8, 1990.  He was also a key member of the 1993 Phillies.  What a great trade that was in 1989.  Closest comp to the 2015 roster: Cole Hamels (de facto ace)
Randy Ready was the progenitor of the only triple play I saw live.  I remember it was against San Diego in 1991 or 1992.  Closest comp to the 2015 roster: Cesar Hernandez
Jeff Parrett was somebody who I was confused about as a kid.  How could he have so many wins compared to the starters?  If that was the case, why didn't he pitch more so the Phillies could get more wins?  Closest comp to the 2015 roster: Luis Garcia (he has a win)
Darrel Akerfelds entered the bullpen and replaced some non-favorites like Todd Frohwirth.  I always felt like he was decent middle of the bullpen guy.  Closest comp to the 2015 roster: Justin DeFratus
Bruce Ruffin was one the wildest pitchers I remember (not counting Mitch Williams).  It must have all the wild pitches I remember happening.  Closest comp to the 2015 roster: David Buchanan

Well, I guess it could have been worse.  Memories are funny things.

The Battle for the Soul of 1955

Imagine being a child 60 years ago. Life could have been good in the summertime. Every day morning, you'd wake up, have a breakfast of champions, go to the general store for some candy and cards on the 5 cent weekly allowance, and then flip and trade and go tire rolling or bike riding until the sun went down.

 It's how I picture it anyway.....in sepia tones with a shadow gradient.

But the best part of being a child in 1955, is that there were two card companies going all out to clamor for attention.  Bowman had staked its claim as the futuristic set in 1955 with the well-known color TV design while Topps had decided to go back to the future by turning its 1954 set 90 degrees to a horizontal presentation.

The reason why there was a choice was because players signed exclusives with each of the companies, not creating true parity in competition.  Design is only one part of the collecting experience; player collection is the other....you want to get the players you want...especially that fit your collection.

For Phillies fans and collectors, there were 19 cards in the 1955 Bowman set, including team favorites and stars, Del Ennis, Richie Ashburn, Robin Roberts, and Willie Jones.

By contrast, the 1955 team set had 10 cards with very little overlap.  Instead, the collectors had to be content with non-stars and less favorites such as:
Ted Kazanski: a 20 year old back-up infielder.
Thornton Kipper: a 25 year old relief pitcher with a total of 31 games pitched.
Danny Schell: a 26 year old pinch hitter extraordinaire.

Probably the best known name on the Phillies Topps checklist was Bob Miller, so what is a team collector to do?  I guess the only option really was to convert to a Topps rookie collector and try for a Clemente and Koufax.....how tragic.

2007 Goudey: A Set of Strangely Magnetic Appeal

Who remembers 2007 Goudey? Back in the days of multi-company licensing, this was the Upper Deck response to the Topps retro set proliferation. This was the first iteration of the set, and the design wasn't based off a Goudey design per se.

 It seemed to be more of an amalgam of Goudey designs and the Diamond Stars set from the '30s. Where it really shined was in the duplication of the card size (they weren't minis, like in later sets) and in the art deco stylings of each of the player backgrounds. In the aggregate,  it was a memorable set that had a buzz about it.

I recently opened a box of the product and was struck by how easy it was to interpret which cards came out of each pack.  There were no unnumbered variations, unannounced insert sets, or parallels upon parallels.  The only misstep (a major one) was the forced inclusion of two essentially equal and parallel sets of different colored backs, usually evenly distributed within each pack.

This causes the completist in me want to complete each 200 card set, though they're exactly the same except the ink color on the back (green and red).  And I set out to do just that.  Additionally, the insert sets were numbered as part of the base set, also making me want to complete them.  And I set out to do that as well....Fortunately, the insert sets are of retired and modern players (like Kei Igawa and Ken Griffey Jr).  The Heads-up set even parallels itself....with different numbers.....to make a long story short, there are 488 cards to collect.  I now need 19, of which only 2 are considered SPs/inserts.

Shown below are some of the other results of the box.
Sport Royalty is a boxtopper.  You get a wrapped card in every box!  I bought a box because there was an off-chance (one in 12 boxes) or receiving an original Goudey card.  Instead, I received Greg Maddux in the well-remembered threads of his halcyon Padre days.
Goudey relics are inserted one per box and have the relics in the shape of a "G".  This stands for gazillion.
Autographs are also inserted one per box and are all on-card.  They are called Goudey Graphs (without the apostrophe in front of Graphs).  I at least received a one-time AL ERA leader.

Are there any simple sets out there anymore? And do we want them to be?  What does retro mean to you?  Why is being a completist such a curse?  (Curse you, card 277, you have evaded me for too long).

1951 Bowman and Me or How to Be Crease Worthy

What would the general first reaction be to someone who said "I have decided to collect a vintage set"? It would normally be along the lines of, "excellent, you will love it." And then when they mention it's to be 1951 Bowman....well, that's a whole different reaction about which secret coffers are funding such a venture. Thankfully, to me when I'm speaking to myself about such endeavors, I realize there are no secret coffers and that pipe dreams are made to be split apart into the varied tapestry that we call collecting. If there was only one focus, where would be the fun in discovery? In color? In the view of a 100 binders ready to be cured and sorted? Therefore, the team collector hat is on for most of these vintage sets, which are from a time immemorial, before 162 game seasons and before packs of greater than 5 cards. As a purveyor of Phillies history, it is mostly cathartic to be immersed in successes of the past, no matter how fleeting or previously unconnected I had been. The 1950 team is especially of interest because it's the oasis in the mid-century destitution of fortune. And baseball cards were around to document that season, with the ever-iconic 1951 Bowman issue. I do not claim to have the whole set, but it's going to happen someday. Let's examine some of that team from days of yore (that sounds like some insert set from Allen&Ginter)
Russ Meyer and his arrival from Chicago from 1949 showed that starting pitchers could once again succeed wearing the Phillies uniform.  The 17-8 record with 3.08 ERA was an inspiration to the next season.
Mike Goliat had his only full season as a starter at 2B in 1950 and provided the youthful exuberance  at the keystone position.
Andy Seminick was one of the veteran statesman of the Phillies, having been with the team since 1943.  His power potential coming to fruition (24 HR and 143 OPS+) corresponded with his prime and the pennant-winning year.
Granny Hamner was cantankerous and young and just coming into his own as an up the middle all-star and MVP candidate.  The former bonus baby lent stability to the shortstop position.
Jimmy Bloodworth was a bench hitter at this point in his career with some pinch hitting prowess and one of the few players over 30 on the team.
Bubba Church was a rookie swingman who sported a 148 ERA+ and finished 4th in the Rookie of the Year voting.

The best part of this mini collection, besides the artistic majesty of their cards, is that they are reminders of childhood and days gone by (I wasn't quite alive then though....or my parents....so almost a reminder).

Stat Anomaly: 20 Losses, Art Ditmar in 1956

The first thought that comes to mind when staring at this card is that "how can the 1956 World Series Yankees have a 20 loss pitcher on their team?"  Well, it turns out that he wasn't on the Yankees, but on the Kansas City Athletics, the team that traded the Yankees everybody.

From a time period of 1955-1960, the Athletics sent the Yankees in trade players such as Clete Boyer, Ralph Terry, Bob Cerv, and Roger Maris.  Art Ditmar was traded in the offseason in a massive 5 for 7 trade;  I guess they saw something in the previous season, in which he lost 22 games with a middling (98 ERA+) ERA of 4.42.  (The 1950s were actually quite a high scoring era.)  Let's see if there are any glimpses, which led to the improved performance from 1957-1960, including a league-leading WHIP in 1959?

It looks like Ditmar was partly a victim of overwork.  He had 34 starts, 44 total appearances, 14 complete games, and a save over a career-high 254 innings.   Only one of those relief appearances led to a loss, though there were a couple blown saves (note: not an official stat in 1956) thrown in there.

Ditmar had what would be considered 5 hard-luck losses.  These are classified for this purpose as pitching no less than 7 innings and allowing 2 earned runs or less.  The biggest hard luck loss by far was on August 3 when he pitched 10.1 innings and allowed 2 runs on 9 hits with 8 K......and lost.  There's no record of how many pitches were thrown, but with 41 batters faced, it probably bordered on 150 pitches, not that anyone kept track of that in 1956.

Ditmar also had a few disaster outings, 8 starts in which he did not surpass the 4th inning and one immemorable start in which he allowed 10 runs over 6.1 innings against Boston.   A couple of those disaster starts seemed like planned pulls though.  There were only 3 runs or less allowed by the 3rd inning and still he was pulled.  This was before the utilization of full bullpens, so it's curious as to what the manager (1948 pennant winner Lou Boudreau) was thinking.

Art Ditmar joined the ranks of this stat anomaly with an eclectic 1956 season.
