1976 Phillies SSPC cards

on May 21st, 2015 by capewood

There’s an interesting history behind the 1976 SSPC cards which I’m not going to go into in detail because there’s a pretty good article about them here on baseballcardpedia.com. Although these cards have a copyright date of 1975, they weren’t released until sometime in 1976 and are considered a 1976 set.

As I’ve mentioned here before, I wasn’t a big baseball fan as a kid. Sure, I liked baseball, and since I lived in Philadelphia, the Phillies were my favorite team. But it wasn’t until I was a young adult, around 1971, that I really became interested in baseball and the 1970’s Phillies were my team.

In 1972, the Phillies were pretty sad sack, finishing with a 59-97 record and 6th in the old NL East. But that was their nadir. By 1976, they finished with a 101-61 record. In 1980 they will win the World Series and remain a dominating team for several years after.  They did it with a core of players who were with the team through out much of the decade. To me, these guys are the Phillies.

Of, course, Michael Jack Schmidt was the main guy. He hit 38 home runs with 107 rbis. He walked 100 times and had 705 plate appearances, only Dave Cash, their lead-off guy with 727, had more.

The next main guy is Steve Carlton. He was 20-7 with a 3.13 ERA and 2 shutouts in 1976. Some of the photos in the set are weird. It looks like the photo was snapped as Carlton was walking by. Given his prickly nature, he was probably saying “No photos” as he went by.

With Bowa, it was always about the defense. Sure he was a dependable bat, but you came to see him play shortstop. He turned 90 double plays in 1976.

To Schmidt’s offense you can add 28 home runs, 95 rbis and a .304 batting average contributed by Luzinski.

for some reason, Garry Maddox is missing from this set, so I’m going to cheat and include his Topps cards. Where would the Phillies have been without the “Secretary of Defense”. Can’t you just hear Harry Kalas calling him that?

In 1976, Boone made his first of 3 appearances as a Phillie in the All-Star Game. There were 5 Phillies on that 1976 All-Star team, Dave Cash, Bob Boone, Greg Luzinski, Larry Bowa and Mike Schmidt.  The Nationals won 7-1.

Tug brought his “Ya Gotta Believe” attitude to the Phillies in 1975. Relief pitching was not as important to the game then as it is now. McGraw only had 11 saves in 1976, sharing the closer duty with Gene Garber (who also had 11). But what Phillie phan can forget Tug’s save of the last game of the 1980 World Series?

I’m pretty familiar with O-Pee-Chee cards from the 1980s and early 1990s. If you don’t know, OPC was a Canadian company that produced Topps cards in Canada. The sets were generally the same as the Topps set each year, except that the OPC cards often ha…

I didn’t buy much Bowman in 1996, even though it retrospect, it’s one of my favorite Bowman sets of the decade. I only had 2 players where I had a card for each set, both Phillies. Since I’m kind of tired of Lenny Dykstra, here’s Gregg Jefferies.Bowman…

Players in the Dugout

on May 1st, 2015 by capewood

If you think about it, players spend a lot of time in the dugout. Even a regular player probably spends 40% of the game in the dugout. A bench warmer probably spends 90% of his time there. So it’s not surprising that there are lots of cards featuring p…

Baseball Players and Technology

on April 29th, 2015 by capewood

I’m getting into the home stretch of my evolution study so it’s time for another break.

The technology of baseball hasn’t changed much over the year. The basic ball-bat-glove has been with us forever, with improvements over the years.  But there’s more than just baseball technology around the ballpark.

1988 Topps #74 Tommy Lasorda

Golf carts, in one guise or another, are often used to bring in a relief pitcher. I’m guessing Tommy was used to be driven around in style at spring training.

1992 Upper Deck #78 Jim Abbott

Jim, while apparently visiting his old dorm room at the University of Michigan.

1993 Upper Deck #173 Doug Jones

Doug taking home movies at the ball park. I don’t think that’s the Astrodome however.

1994 Collector’s Choice #240 Cal Ripken, Jr.

Cal ordering pizza from the dugout with a giant cordless phone.

1994 Pinnacle #100 Ken Griffey Jr.

Ken was willing to show his 35mm vacation slides anywhere anytime.

1994 Pinnacle #157 Ryan Klesko

Ryan getting some tips in case his on-field career doesn’t last.

1995 Collector’s Choice Special Edition #38 Craig Biggio

Craig filling in while the cameraman takes a bathroom break.

1997 Donruss #191 Brett Butler

Another giant phone. People must have had bigger pockets then.

1997 Upper Deck #49 Charles Nagy

Charles getting in some work at spring training.

1998 Stadium Club #284 Sean Berry

One of the original Astro ‘Killer Bs”. I didn’t think bees could fly in the rain.

Baseball Card Evolution – 1994

on April 24th, 2015 by capewood

See my post Capewood’s Theory of Baseball Card Evolution here.

Bowman – Stage 6

 Bowman’s only year a full Stage 6. It’s got the back photo, the foil, the gloss and the full bleed printing.

Donruss – Stage 6

Donruss was also at Stage 6, but not as nice a card as Bowman. The name on the front is hard to read and there are not enough stats on the back.

Fleer – Stage 5

Fleer is another year from Stage 6, but this is a nice design with an uncluttered front.

Score – Stage 4

The fronts featured good photographs and the backs are nice but that horrid dark blue border on the front ruined this set.

Topps Stage 4

The front is a bit more cluttered than the Score but it’s much more colorful and bright. I always liked the backs of this set as well.

Upper Deck – Stage 6

Pretty good except for that goofy elongated insert photo on the front.

Since I seem to have most of the mainstream 1994 Eckersley cards, I’ll show the rest that I have. There were a lot of card issues in 1994. The Eckersley cards I’m missing are Bowman’s Best (7), Finest (7), Upper Deck Fun Pack (4), Leaf (6), Pacific (6), Select (6), SP (6), and Studio (6).

Collector’s Choice – Stage 4

This is the first year for Collector’s Choice. It looks very much like 1993 Upper Deck.

Flair – Stage 7

Fleer’s attempt at a super premium card like Topps Finest. Printed on thicker card stock, with full bleed printing, gold foil and super high gloss, all on the front and the back.

Pinnacle – Stage 6

Pinnacle, in their 3rd year, jumped right from Stage 3 to Stage 6 with this pretty good effort. This is their best Stage 6 card as future years would be heavily lathered with gold foil.

Stadium Club – Stadium Club

Stadium Club started in 1991 already at Stage 6. There were some design changes for 1994, most notably going from gold foil to red foil but it remained the great brand it had been.

Triple Play – Stage 6-

This Donruss product started in 1992 mainly trying to appeal to kids. It moved to full bleed printing in this, it’s final year of it’s original run, but didn’t incorporate foil. So it’s not quite Stage 6.

Ultra – Stage 6

Ultra, Fleer’s first attempt at a premium card, started in 1991 as a Stage 3 card, but jumped to Stage 6 in 1992. In these early days of Ultra, they always had 3 photos on the back. For some reason, the foil logo on this Eckersley card is sideways, as though this was a horizontal card rather than vertical.
