Random Phillies cards of the Week

To give credit where credit is due, I got the idea for this post from the Wrigley Wax blog. I don't know his plans but I'm going to try to make this a weekly feature. I'm a bit dismayed that he has more Cubs cards (8,448) than I have Phillies cards (6,752). I'm going to break my year slots down to 1950/1960/1970s. 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s.

1975 Topps #527 Mac ScarceMac Scarce was born Guerrant McCurdy Scarce. By 1975 he was an ex-Phillie. He was traded with Del Enser and John Stearns to the Mets for Tug McGraw, Don Hahn, and Dave Schneck. I don't know anything about Hahn and Schneck but Tug McGraw was a bit part of the 1980 World Series Phillies. Mac was 5-18 in 3 years with the Phillies with an ERA of 6.65.

1987 Donruss #630 Charlie HudsonBy 1987, Hudson was also an ex-Phillie. He came up in 1983, a World Series year for the Phillies. In 4 years with the Phillies he had a 32-42 record, with an ERA 3.98. When Charlie was with the Phillies he was Charlie. When he went to the Yankees he became Charles.

1998 Collector's Choice #458 Doug Glanville
Glanville was the #1 draft pick of the Cubs in 1991. He was traded to the Phillies after the 1997 season the Cubs traded him to the Phillies for Mickey Morandini. Doug was a University of Pennsylvania grad with a degree in systems engineering. He seems to be some kind of venture capitalist today.

2002 Donruss #124 Robert Person
This year of Donruss was pretty unattractive, in my opinion. Another ex-Phillie, he was a free agent at the end of the 2002 season. He played for the Phillies for 4 years and was a respectable 38-24 with an ERA of 4.23. He was 15-7 for the Phillies in 2001.

I'm so far behind in my blog reading I didn't know you'd been doing this for awhile.
