I am in the middle of undertaking what feels like a rather Herculean task: assembling an Excel database that lists every Phillies baseball card and baseball-card-related item ever made. I am including (to the best of my ability) all information on known parallels, print runs, serial numbering, types of memorabilia swatches on the cards, and any other information that a Phillies collector might find helpful. At the current rate of progress, I estimate that I should have it completed sometime in 2015. Every few weeks or so, I will post an updated file to this page. You can download the most current version of it by clicking here.
As part of the project, I am also building an online version of the database which lists the checklists in a more user-friendly form and provides helpful information regarding each of the sets — including, but not limited to, sample scans of cards, links to data sources used to compile checklists and, where applicable, differences in how Beckett and Sports Collector Digest (SCD) refer to the set names. I started this part of the project in mid-February, 2012, and although, I hope to continue adding checklists on a regular basis, I have no idea how long it will take to complete the project.
In a break from the manner in which Beckett and SCD compile their catalogs, all checklists will be listed in chronological order.
I consider this an open-source project and welcome all corrections, suggestions and comments of all types of welcome in the comments section of each checklist. Edits resulting from posted comments will be properly credited and sourced.
