The 2011 Phungo’s Are Here!!!

The 2011 Phungo’s Are Here!!!

Sweet – my first crack at some 2011 baseball cards!!

These cards come courtesy of Paul, author of the blog Phungo.  Along with being a dedicated Phillies fan, Paul is also a card designer and this is the third straight season in which he has sent over some of his custom issues for ’30-YOC’.

So, without further ado, here is my haul from Phungo 2011…


In random order, you are seeing cards of the following current and former players:  Shane Victorino, Derrek Lee, Mickey Morandini, Hanley Ramirez, Robin Roberts(SP), and an Opening Day card from the Phillies and Nationals game.

The cards are sweet – of them can you guess which one is my favorite??

It’s not Hanley…  It’s not former Marlin and Cub Derrek Lee either…  And it’s not Shane Victorino…

My favorite card from this pack is…  Mickey Morandini!!!

Yep, ‘The Mick’.  Why you ask?  Any time I think of or hear the name Mickey Morandini, I get flashbacks of listening to Harry Caray try to pronounce that name – FUN every single time!!

Thanks for the memories Paul.  And the great cards too!!!

My First Pack Of 2010 Phungo Cards!!!

I was presently surprised to find a package in the mail recently from Paul over at Phungo.  I’ve avoided contacting Paul recently because I am still a little mad that my favorite active pitcher is now the ace of his favorite team, the Phillies.  If you’re a Marlins fan, there is still a handful of us left, this move was very hurtful of our chances at winning the AL East any time soon.

Maybe this was Paul’s peace-offering – a pack of 2010 Phungo cards.

I quickly ripped them open, and here are the results:

Chris Coghlan- the 2009 NL Rookie of the Year, Aramis Ramirez, Rich Harden, Nick Johnson, and Ivan Rodriguez.

The pack also contained 2 inserts of rare and significant value.  The first insert was the Blue-bordered Harry Caray tribute card that depicts Harry as he leads the Wrigley Faithful in a rendition of ‘Take Me Out To The Ballgame’.  The second insert was the even more rare Black-bordered Harry Kalas Memorial card showing a memorial that the Phillies’ fans made for Kalas after he passed.

I can’t be too mad at Paul right?  After all he sent me this free pack of cards – and some of the cards I pulled seem to be quite rare.  I guess I just need to get over the fact that I will get to see Roy Halladay pitch a lot more than I used to – but this time I will be forced to route against him…

Thanks Paul!!!
