Except for restricting handing out the number (to any Tom, Dick and Harry) that is pretty much the Flyers Hall of Fame.
The Phillies 'Wall of Fame' seems to me to be a looser version... Both are Team/Organization honors well short of Retiring the number. Number retirement is the ultimate honor IMO, and also seemingly in the Flyers' opinion, and HoF induction to me seems to me to be a fair gauge.
