May 21, 2012 Taylor Phillips and Ken MacKenzie

Taylor Phillips

Mr Phillips played for the Milwaukee Braves, Chicago Cubs and  Philadelphia Phillies in the late 1950s. All three photos used to make the cards were originally black and white and were colorized. The 1957 card was my first attempt at a horizontal style to better show the photo.

Ken MacKenzie

Was born in Canada and now lives in Connecticut. Graduated from Yale in 1956 and was a member of the 1962 Mets.

From Wikipedia:  Manager Casey Stengel was quoted that MacKenzie was a great kid. "He's a splendid young fella with a great education from Yale University. His signing with us makes him the lowest paid member of the class of Yale '56
