I’m continuing the Phillies custom series that brought back Bobby Shantz and Pat Neshek in under a week. Unlike the design, and I think when I get returns in the multiple of 9s they will look real sharp in pages.
This batch features some of my favorite childhood players. Larry Bowa made a searing impression on my childhood, and an everlasting image of him Bose to nose with a revolving door of umpires.
Von Hayes I think was a scapegoat for a lot of fans’ frustrations over mismanagement in the mid to late 80s, and a broken arm prematurely ended what could have been a much brighter career.
Manny Trillo I remember vaguely from the pages of Phillies’ Today, the game day program and scorecard.
Wes Chamerlain was a great off the bench guy in the 93 postseason run, which is still my favorite year of Phillies baseball.
My favorite memory of Larry Anderson comes from a highlight video. In the video he finds a Hair in a Can spray and applies it hilariously badly. Since retiring, LA has turned into one of my favorite broadcasters.
Tommy Greene pitched a no hitter in 91 and was a mid-rotation guy for a stout 93 team.
All the addresses I used came from SportsCardForum. These guys seem to be returning pretty quickly, so we may have some new additions to the TTM HOF page in the next week or so.
