The Phillies believe in recycling.

Rather than toss the old clubhouse carpet from last season, the team has chopped it into 18-by-24-inch pieces.

Last week, the hunks -- decorated with player numbers in authentic uniform fonts, World Series Champions patches and the MLB authentication program hologram stickers -- went on sale at the game-used collectibles kiosk behind Section 126 in the ballpark.

Prices: $150 for the bench players or $250 for the '08 season's big guns.

Two per player.

At $250, by the way, that's $750 a square yard.

Which sounds ridiculous until you realize that the Phillies are now thinking of how to market one of the two 17-by-8-foot Phillies logos from the old carpet.
