I generally try not to post a player's card if he's already appeared on one of my other blogs (like this 1969 card of Johnny Callison), but I'm making an exception here for several reasons:
1. Callison is one of my favorite Phillies from when I was growing up in the 1960s (CommishBob's too!)
2. This was my first Callison card
3. I read a story today on the Philadelphia newspaper's website, and I needed a place to pass the link along, for all Callison fans to read
4. It's all-star day, and 49 years ago, Johnny Callison was the toast of the town.
Callison also pops up here.
And check out Deal's take on his Phungo blog.
