|Pacific Senior Baseball card of Dave Cash (not a recent acquisition).|
Cash was an All-Star all three of those years with the Phillies, and led the NL in hits with 213 in 1975. Those years were the start of the Phillies drive to the World Series, with 1976 being the first of three consecutive NL East divisional titles. Both for his impact as a mentor to Schmidt and as a part of the Phillies drive to the postseason, I wanted to add a Cash card in his prime with the Phillies to my collection. I had settled on wanting the 1976 card, in non-slabbed form to add to my binder. Above is a picture of the only card of Cash I was aware of in my collection, a Pacific card from Cash's time in the Senior Baseball league. Today, the new card arrived, and it is already at home in my binder, right after teammate Tony Taylor.
