1983 Phillies Postcards Great Moments

Set Type: Primary
Card dimensions: 3½” x 59/16
Additional Information: During the 100th Anniversary season, the Phillies distributed to fans two postcards — sponsored by Girard Bank — in a specially-marked envelope at every Friday night home game. One card commemorated the great Phillies moments and the players involved in them, while the other card honored great Phillies players and managers. The artwork on the card front was reproduced from original watercolors by Dick Perez, the official Phillies artist at the time. The 14 cards in this set and the 14 cards in the Great Players and Managers set combined to make a 28-card set. The Phillies also issued a special binder to hold the postcards. However, the pages were not made of archival quality material, and storing the set in it on a long-term basis may cause damage to the cards.

SCD’s 2011 Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards does not list either of the two 1983 Phillies Postcards sets. The Header Card is unnumbered.
