7th Spring Training TTM Return – Brandon Phillips!!
41 days after I put these two cards in the mail, they are both home again!!
Brandon Phillips and the Reds changed Spring Training facilities this year so I was a little worried about how the mail at a new place would be handled. But leave it up to the very fan-friendly Phillips to handle his mail quickly while always taking out time for his fans. Phillips has one of the best TTM reputations in the majors, and he didn’t disappoint, by delivering two signed cards back to me.
I have always liked his game – in fact he was on my fantasy team for 3 years in a row until I discovered a guy named Aaron Hill a few years back. At 29 years of age, and already in his 9th big league season, Phillips excelled once he joined the Reds. After joining the team in 2006, he instantly became a full-time starter and his numbers flourished. Phillips became a run-scoring, home run hitting, base-stealing threat. In 2007 he joined the 30/30 club due to his all-around skills.
I look forward to seeing what he does for the Reds in 2010.
Thank you for the great autographs Brandon!!
