Set Type: Primary
Card Dimensions: 3½” x 59/16”
Additional Information: During the 100th Anniversary season, the Phillies distributed to fans two postcards 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. For more general information about the two sets, see the Additional Information section of the 1983 Phillies Postcards Great Phillies Moments set.
The cards in this set reproduce the artwork used in the 1983 Phillies calendar, with each card depicting the 3-5 Phillies selected as the best in franchise history at his position, with starting pitchers receiving two cards and managers and relievers each receiving a card of their own as well.
SCD’s 2011 Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards does not list either of the two 1983 Phillies Postcards sets. The Checklist card, which lists all the cards for both sets, is unnumbered.
