The 1964 Philadelphia Phillies season is infamous for traumatizing hometown fans with a horrendous September swoon known as "The Phold". While the Phils just missed out on a trip to the World Series by one game, they did provide their diehard rooters plenty to cheer about throughout a very exciting campaign. Dick Allen was selected NL Rookie of the Year, Johnny Callison was the All-Star MVP, Jim Bunning delivered a perfect game performance on Father's Day and budding star Rick Wise showed plenty of promise. Keep the Phaith with this 1964 Phillies collection of autographed trading cards, newspaper cutout cards, phantom World Series tickets and more.
