All-Time Phillies Shortstop List: Granny Hamner 1956 Topps Representing

For a long time, I remember the single season HR record for a SS by a Phillie was held by Granny Hamner. This is really only in my memory because Dickie Thon was trying to break that record back in the not so glorious year of 1989. I was lucky enough to purchase this card from Check out My Cards for a decent price, so I thought it would be a compelling starting point for a new series: "All-time Phillies by Position"
