2016 Topps Phillies Checklist & Photo Game Dates: Jerad Eickhoff #2

My latest obsession with recent Topps has been combing Getty Images and finding the pictures that are on the cards. Tonight with Jerad Eickhoff scheduled to be on the mound facing the Marlins we have chosen to feature a card with a photo of him taken last year in Miami.

2016 Topps #2 Jerad Eickhoff

Sitting in the #2 spot for 2016 Topps is Jerad Eickhoff. With Mike Trout occupying the leadoff spot Eickhoff is Essentially the first non-star card of the set.

I found the Photo on the card relatively quickly. In 2016 Topps has done a good job of getting shots of rookies during their debut game, which is the case with Jerad. The original photo in Getty Images was taken by Sports Photographer Ronald C Modra who has shot 70 Sports Illustrated Covers.

Eikhoff's debut  on August 21, 2015 was a successful one as the Phillies defeated the Marlins 7-1 in Miami. Eickhoff scattered five hits and a walk over six shutout innings. In addition to recording his first Major League W, Eickhoff collected his first Hit along with a pair of RBIs on a Bases Loaded single off Kendry Flores in the fourth inning.

When the Philllies acquired Jerad Eickhoff from the Rangers as part of the Cole Hamels deal I really didn't expect much from him. In fact I still don't, perhaps due to these low expectations he has been a pleasant surprise.

Getty Got It
I have started keeping track of the cards that I have found on Getty and decided that this post will serve as an Index to the other columns dedicated to game dating cards for 2016 Topps Phillies.

A full Green Line in the chart below signifies Phungo Games, which are games that Team Phungo has been fortunate enough to attend. If the Players Name is highlighted in Red that is a link to the specific posting dealing with the related card.
