Phillies TTM: The Week of 12/5/11

Jim Bunning Wall of Fame Postcard

Slow week for me.  I did not send any items last week, keeping most of my current project home in case I decided to have any of them signed during last weekend's card show.

Jim Bunning Wall of Fame plaque postcard:
The is the third card in the Phillies Wall of Fame plaque card set that I have received back signed.  I really like this set, and wish the Phillies would add to it annually with a card for each new inductee.  The set was a SGA during the 2005 Alumni Weekend.  There is a card for each WOF member through 2005 inductee - Bob Boone.  There are still several guys in the set who are living (Bowa, Maddox, Luzinski, Carlton, etc) - and I'll get them eventually, too!

On this particular card - let me say this: Jim Bunning is awesome.  I have had several successes from him over the past few years.  He clearly can get paid to sign his name, but regularly returns fan mail for free.  I will really enjoy having this card in my collection.

I probably will not get too much more out before the end of the year, but did send the 1980 team photo to Del Unser and the 1977 team ball to Richie Hebner this week and hope to get them both back before the calendar year switches...
