1987 Phillies Great Performers of 1986

Set Type: Main
Dimensions: 9” x 9”
Additional Information: Issued by the Phillies to season ticket holders who took part in their “1987 Phillies Early Bird Program.” The set features artwork by Dick Perez, the Phillies official artist at the time. Just 800 complete folios were produced, and the header card that came with each set bears a serial number for the set, a brief description of the 1986 performance for each of the players depicted within, a photo of Perez with the original artwork for the Schmidt print, and Perez’s signature. The prints are otherwise unnumbered and blank-backed.

Neither Beckett’s online guide nor SCD’s 2011 Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards list the set. The name of the set derives from the maroon envelope containing the complete art folio.
