Phils Fans Digging World Series Home Run Balls

Behold: instant memorabilia…free.

It hadn’t happened since 1980.

The Philadelphia Phillies –28 years after Pete Rose, Mike Schmidt and Steve Carlton were the headliners–have another World Series title.

That alone was worth celebrating well into Thursday morning for fans in the championship-hungry city and surrounding area. But if you went to a Series game and latched on to a little piece of the game itself…even better.

In a never-ending quest to find stories about the 2008 World Series, the Courier-Post of South Jersey found a few lucky fans who will have something of tangible value to pass down along with those memories.
