Wow! My latest Phillies TTM success added Steve Carlton to my 1980 Phillies photo!
The 1980 team photo was a centerfold from a nameless, early 1980s sports magazine. At some point I ripped from its staple mooring and placed it in a Rubbermaid container for safe keeping - only to rediscover it as a new TTM project about three years ago.
It has been a fun sending it around - adding some really obscure members of the team such as Larrin LaGrow or Dan Larsen. I was even able to add a few free ones during various Alumni Weekends. All the mailings have taken a toll on the photo - bent edges, small rips and stray sharpie marks tell its story! Lefty was the second paid signature (I also bought Bake McBride) - but, at the vastly reduced TTM price, I couldn't resist adding a high profile member of the World Champs!
