Running behind as always - A few weeks back the Phillies are welcoming a new closer, Jonathan Papelbon, formerly of the Boston Red Sox.
Typically I don't get to many shots of closers for Phungo Cards. There are a variety of reasons - once the game starts I tend to put the camera away, Closers typically are only involved in tight games, and they only pitch at the end of games when light is less favorable for good shots. The game this pix is from happened to be one of Boston's blowouts of the Phils and by that point in the game, I was more interested in gettting a decent picture then in the game.
Regardless I am happy to have already produced a Phungo Card of Papelbon prior to him ever suiting up for the Phils. Hopefully act II of his career will be as successful as his stint in Boston.
I hope to have a card show regarding the Philly Show which was this past weekend up tomorrow. The Show was pretty successful for team Phungo. I was able to knock out quite a few cards from my vintage want list and thoroughly enjoyed the day.
