2011-12-07 Phillie Filler for the Day

Featured Card: 2003 Fleer Pepsi #20, Pat Burrell

What’s not discernible in this scan is that this is a mini card — it measures just 2″ x 2-3/4″. What I really love, however, is seeing the statistical progression on the back of the card. After the 2002 season, it really did seem like he was about to become one of the game’s elite hitters. Then the 2003 trainwreck happened, and he never seemed the same afterwards. Nonetheless, as I said a few weeks ago, I fully expect him to one day grace the Phillies Wall of Fame.
