MONDO Break: Phillies

The Phils got a whole big bunch of cards, but also a few duplicates in the lot. True fans appreciate the bounty.

TEAM: Philadelphia Phillies

Jim Thome Bat x2
Was this the first framed relic set? Someone will let me know.

Cole Hamels Jersey

Cole Hamels Jersey
Sound familiar?

Chase Utley Jersey
Familiar set, new face.

Steve Carlton / Johan Santana Dual Jersey
Alright, good to see an old-school guy make an appearance.

Jimmy Rollins Jersey (084/125)

Jimmy Rollins Jersey (x2)
For the sake of fun, let's call him "Jimmy Two Times."

Great hits for the Phils.

I couldn't say for sure what was the very first framed relic set, but the set the Thome cards are from, the 2003 Topps 205 set, couldn't possibly be it, as the 2002 Topps 206 set also had framed relics. Anybody know of anything earlier than 2002?
