While cleaning and trying to get some envelopes together to ship this weekend (there should be quite a few of them), I thought I'd show off 5 more cards towards the 1500 total.
Take a look...
Card #921: Mark DeRosa
Serial Number: 1198
Team: San Francisco Giants, card # 26 out of 50
The ultimate utilityman, Mark has had 6 different seasons in which he played at least one game at 6 different positions. (not counting DH) Mark hit career home run #100 this year with the Blue Jays.
Card #922: Justin Morneau
Serial Number: 1095
Team: Minnesota Twins, card # 28 out of 50
I was really surprised that the Twins put Morneau on waivers, but not unlike everything else, all good things must come to an end. Maybe. There were a few quick whispers that the Pirates might go after him, but they died out quickly.
Card #923: Ian Kinsler
Serial Number: 1004
Team: Texas Rangers, card # 37 out of 50
The Diamondbacks really liked Kinsler, so much so that they drafted him twice (2000 & 2001). Both times, he did not sign. The Rangers picked him in the 17th rd in 2003, and the rest as they say is history.
Card #924: Johnny Cueto
Serial Number: 994
Team: Cincinnati Reds, card # 31 out of 50
I am not a Cincinnati Reds fan, but for some reason, I could see myself being a Johnny Cueto fan. I don't know if it's the Luis Tiant spin in his windup, but I really do like watching Cueto pitch. Maybe one day if he changes teams I'll follow him even more....
Card #925: Johan Santana
Serial Number: 970
Team: New York Mets, card # 34 out of 50
How many of you out there knew that Santana was a rule 5 draftee? I'll go one better, the day he was selected by the Marlins in the Rule 5 draft, he was traded to the Minnesota Twins for Jared Camp. Jared never pitched a game in the majors, and we all know how Santana fared in the Twin Cities. I can't see the Mets picking up his $25 million option for 2014. Any takers?
Thanks for reading, Robert
