Johnny Callison (#85)

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.

Heeere's Johnny!

Callison also pops up here.

And check out Deal's take on his Phungo blog.

Hi Deal,

I read the Inky column at lunchtime today while at work. On the way home, I was hoping that I hadn't already posted Callison's '67 card, so that I could work in that link.

About 2 minutes after I posted it, I scrolled down my sidebar and saw your post. That's a great ESPN column!

I gotta check... I *think* I have all of Callison's regular Topps cards now except that '67 special with Richie Allen.

Do you have this card from 1966 with Callison and Wes Covington?
