PWE From Jeff!

Jeff was kind enough to send me a PWE a couple weeks ago. He runs a blog called Wish they still came with Bubblegum! It's still fun to open packs of 1987 Topps and dare your friends to eat the gum. It may or may not be rock hard at this point though!

He hit a nice cross section of Phillies sports.

The Aaron Nola is a picture of when he was a college pitcher in LSU. He is one of the hopes for the Phillies this year. If he does well along with Franco and JP Crawford and one or two other young guys they could be setup well for the future. At worst the Phillie Phanatic will be on his A game.

The big debate on Philly Sports Talk Radio is whether the Eagles are going to sign Bradford or not. It's a sad state of affairs at the moment for the Eagles. They re-signed Ertz, Celeck and Lane Johnson, all solid guys but with no QB and an average Defense it won't be a pretty season next year.

The Flyers might have the next great D-man in Shane Gotisbehere (SP?) Easier to just call him Ghost. At least something to get excited about!

Thanks for the cards and thanks for reading!


  1. Nice assortment of cards there. I once tried to chew the gum from a pack of 1987 Topps (I think it was '87) - now I know what sawdust tastes like.

  2. Crawford looks like the real deal.
