Last night’s 9th inning comeback capped by Bryce Harper’s walk-off grand slam had to be one of the most exciting regular season finishes for the Phillies in their long history for several reasons, not the least because they’re riding the feel-good vibes of Charlie Manuel returning to the dugout in the capacity of hitting coach as the club’s pursuit of a wild card playoff spot appeared tenuous at best.
Topps wasted no time in making a great commemorative card of the occasion available.
The Phillies have struggled to string wins together this year, their longest win streak being four games. They did that to open the season, and twice subsequently, and will try to duplicate that tonight vs. the Padres after sweeping the Cubs at home. As unlikely as it is that the Phils will go on a sustained run, the finish last night was a reminder that anything is possible.
