Then there was one...

Carlos 'Choooooooooch' Ruiz was traded to the Dodgers yesterday afternoon. He was one of two players left from the Phillies 2008 Championship team. The only player left is none other then my main PC player Ryan Howard.

Bye bye Chooch, you will always be remembered as one of the best catchers in Philly history and always doing a great job handling the pitching staff.

Pretty nice action shot on the metal card from last year's Topps.

The Last of the Phillies.. Ryan Howard.. here's my latest pickup.

A sweet spot Sig numbered out of 10. Red ink. This card really pops in hand, pretty pleased with it. No fading on the auto either. I kinda hope Howard retires after the Phillies buy him out at the end of the season. He has almost 400 home runs in one uniform and will definitely be on the Phillies wall of fame as soon as he is eligible. He'll get a vote here or there for Cooperstown but I know he won't get in.

Thanks for reading!

  1. It seems like most of the red autos have held up well over time. The regular autos not so much.
