With the two different Bobby Shantz cards, these two returns close out page 2 the Phillies TTM Frankenset.  These returns also end a drought that’s run since June 7.  Grant Jackson made his debut with the Phillies in 1965 and was the lone representative in the ’69 All-Star Game in Washington.  Interesting note, Jackson wrote “your return” address with an arrow up to the return address field on the return envelope.  So, if you’re going to send to Grant, put your address in both the to and from fields on your return envelope.

Dan Plesac also arrived today with one of my favorite cards from the Frankenset, I found a great shot of Plesac with the Phillie Phanatic.  I really love watching Dan on MLB Network, he’s got a great attitude, and his love for the game radiates through the TV.

We sent out almost 2 dozen requests 4th of July weekend, so hopefully this will open the returns floodgate for us.
