I was not able to make it to the very last game due to the holiday season, but that's ok. I went to the 2nd to the last game with my wife and we witnessed his last home run as a Phillies player. That was a real nice moment. Seems like a lot of fans showed up for the very last game which was pretty classy to give him a nice send off. He will definitely be put on the Phillies Wall of Fame, I will have to keep an eye on the announcement to see when that will be. (I forget how many years they wait to induct players)
These are my 4 Ryan Howard Superfractors! Four of my favorite pieces of the PC. Hard to find of course and can be hard to acquire depending on the circumstances (had to trade a real nice Ichiro card for one of them). Three of them of course completed my rainbows of Topps Chrome. Good times!
Not sure how I'll feel if/when I see him in a different uniform. I know he doesn't want to retire right now and will try and give himself another shot to play. Can't blame a guy for wanting to keep playing MLB. Hope it works out for him on a personal level.
Thanks for reading!
