Great Mailday Thanks To Topps

My wife signed for a rather large envelope from Topps today.  When I got home, this is what I found inside it.
Its the fulfillment of the redemption I pulled from 2013 Topps Archives Baseball. (To see the box break recap and review, use this link.)  This is a game used dugout scorecard from the Phillies / Brewers September 25, 2009 game.  It measures 17" x 11"  and is MLB authenticated. From the certification it seems like this card was used by the Philies.  This was the year Cliff Lee came over from Cleveland and one of the rare games that season that he got shellacked pitching for Philadelphia.  He gave up 4 runs in the first inning, 7 runs in total as Milwaukee beat the Phillies  8 - 4.  Getting whole pieces of memorabilia is very cool.
