Harper's First Phillies card!

Those sneaky people at Topps snuck in an unannounced short print into 2019 Bowman. When I first saw the Harper card I of course had to get one. I don't count the Topps Now card as his first Phillies card because it's not pack issued. To me, this is the first officially released Harper Phillies card. I know hes in a bit of a slump right now but he'll break out and even with him in a slump the team is playing ok. I've been to 3 games so far this year and am planning on 1 more this month and a few more beyond that. The stadium is crowded and fun to attend again. For the record I still attended when barely anyone showed up but it wasn't as exciting.

It doesn't hurt that the picture on this card is a nice shot. Solid hitting pose ready to blast the ball into the stands (or swing really hard and miss haha)

Thanks for reading!

  1. I've been getting the Topps Now cards as a Harper fan. I have 2 of the "first" one with him putting on the Phillies Uniform, why I purposfully got 2 when only 1 would be fine I don't know. I'm a bit bummed he is in the red pinstripes and not under the Curly W lid. Again Topps Does a damn super short print on a first Harper. I am still mega mad at them for the 2012 Topps Archives SSP RC Harper that I will probably never be able to afford. That is just the regular version of the card not the damn autographed one.
