In June of 2014 Jim “Chet” Chesko and Bill Furman along with the listeners of Philly Pressbox Radio selected the first ever Philly Pressbox Hall of Fame class. There were 21 Philadelphia athletes, all members of their respective Hall of Fame, that were put on the ballot, of that 10 were selected. They were Mike Schmidt, Steve Carlton, Robin Roberts of the Phillies, Wilt Chamberlain and Julius “Dr J” Erving of the 76ers, Bobby Clarke and Bernie Parent of the Flyers and Chuck Bednarik, Steve Van Buren and Reggie White of the Eagles.

The remaining 11 from that ballot were carried over to 2015 and we’ve added 5 more names to the list. Of the 16 on the 2015 ballot the fans will vote to pick 3, Chet will pick one and Bill will pick one for a total of 5 to complete the class. Each person can make a maximum of 5 picks since this list is so tough.

 

The voting will be open until Wednesday June 17 with the results announced during the Philly Pressbox Radio Roundtable show at 7pm Eastern time on June 17.

The nominees are as follows:

As a follow-up to the  Philly Pressbox Radio Roundtable show which aired live on Wednesday May 28, 2014 we have established our voting poll below. You can listen to the show at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/phillypressboxradio and here Jim “Chet” Chesko and Bill Furman break down each of the 21 finalists.  The finalists were selected based on the fact that they have already been inducted in to their respective Halls of Fame. Many others were consider, some led Philadelphia teams to championships, however, they didn’t make this cut due to not having the longevity in the city. Believe me selecting just 10 out of the 21 will be difficult enough. There are some others that may be inducted in to their Hall of Fame in the future but they to were left off at this time. We have 5 Phillies, Mike Schmidt, Steve Carlton, Robin Roberts, Richie Ashburn and Jim Bunning. There are 6 Eagles, Steve Van Buren, Chuck Bednarik, Pete Pihos, Tommy McDonald, Bob Brown and Reggie White. We have 4 Flyers, Bobby Clarke, Bernie Parent, Bill Barber, Mark Howe and 6- 76ers, Wilt Chamberlain, Hal Greer, Billy Cunningham, Chet Walker, Julius Erving and Charles Barkley.
