My Favorite Cards: Pat Burrell

In light of today's announcement that Pat Burrell will retire as a Phillie I was once again forced to reflect on his time with the team.  A huge part of the success (and failures) of the teams from 2000-2008, his imprint on the city is here to stay.  Here are some of my favorite Pat Burrell cards:

2001 Topps - #144

Comments: What a classic shot of the guy who lit up the Phillies lineup during the early 2000's.  Bonus points for the inclusion of a Topps All-Star Rookie trophy cup.

1999 Topps Traded - #T44

Comments: Sentimental favorite for me.  I wasn't collecting cards (at all) in 1999 - but, was definitely excited about the prospects of Burrell helping the big club sooner than later.  That excitement drove me to pick up this card at a flea market sometime around his MLB debut in 2000.
