With a nod to the New Year, I thought we should start looking forward to the new collectibles we will be acquiring during 2012.  Just as card shows, flea markets/yard sales and eBay are excellent ways to add Phillies memorabilia from our past to your collection, attending SGA games are the best way to pick up a few "new" ones.  This week, the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs (Phillies AAA affiliate) announced their preliminary promotional schedule for the 2012 baseball season.  The announcement is the first from any of the Phillies minor league teams.  Thanks to Matthew Froehlich (follow him on Twitter: @DaRock12283) for the heads up!
