I recently became a member of the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame. Buying an elite membership gets a bunch of perks like a $10 book, cards of the inductees, a shirt, among other things..
Well, since I was a first time member, I received the full set thus far. when you renew, you receive the current year inductees.
The first class of inductees was in 1983. There were six inductees that year.
Induction isn't limited to Canadian born citizens. It also allows those who have a significant contribution to baseball in Canada.
I think the most famous story about Phil is his return to the mound after being a Prisoner of War in Germany.
There is a plaque at a Phil Marchildon Park in Penetanguishene detailing his story.
For the next few days I'll be doing this style of post, as I scan and enter cards for the Trading Card Database.
I want to cover the cards year by year.
