2012 Topps Gypsy Queen #113
I started buying Phillies team sets again this year, and none stood out as much as Topps Gypsy Queen. The second edition of this brand was a success! If you need any proof of why you should buy the Phillies set, take a look at this card...

2009 Topps Heritage #387
Not technically a "Ruiz card", but how could I not include this great card from the 1960-flashback set? In a World Series filled with memorable plays, the rain-delayed Game Three featured a little World Series history. This card celebrates the first game-winning, infield hit in WS history as Carlos sealed it for the Phils with a dribbler in the ninth. As the old saying goes, they're all line drives in the book!

2007 Upper Deck Alumni Night Set #14
This card is from a cool set given out Alumni Night 2007. The set features players from the 2007 team as well as ten select alumni (including Dave Hollins and Rico Brogna). Not necessarily a tough find locally, but I've always like the overall design of the cards and in particular this one of Chooch.

2010 Topps #122
There have been several cards featuring Ruiz wearing the "tools of ignorance", but this one stands out above the rest. It's hard to have a unique card image as a catcher, but I think this is a different take on the "mask-off, pop up pose" we have seen before.
