Pocket-Sized Mailday

Collectibles are collectible today because at one time they weren’t thought to be collectible.  I’ll give you a few seconds for all that to sink in.

I just wanted to show off some gifts I recently received from a very dedicated reader of Sports Card Info.  This reader was going through their inventory and came across some interesting items they thought would fit well into my collection.  Boy were they right!

What they found were six pocket schedules from the Philadelphia Phillies AA minor league team the Reading Phillies.  The schedules range from 1967 to 1974.  Early pocket schedules like this aren’t the easiest things to find.  Upon further research, I found out that 1967 was the first year the Reading Phillies were even around.  Reading has had a baseball team since 1858, but 1967 was the first year they were associated with the Phillies.

Schedules like this were most likely thrown out back then.  They surely weren’t held on to like the schedules are today.  Not only did these schedules survive, but they’re in excellent condition too.  What a cool find!  Thanks!
