Serial Insanity cards 991-995

Getting close to the 1000 card mark for the SNI set.  That card will be shown this weekend. 

Meanwhile, enjoy the next 5...

Card 991:  Brian Fuentes

Serial Number:  501
38th card out of 50 for the Cardinals

Ahhh, the life of a reliever.  Over a 12 year major league career, Fuentes had a grand total of 1 AB.  Brian went 0 for 1 against a fellow named Nate Bump.  Yea, I never heard of Nate either.  At least Fuentes didn't strike out...

Card # 992:  Chris Perez

Serial Number:  894
33rd card out of 50 for the Indians

Gee, what a coincidence, Perez also only has 1 AB in his career.  Anyone remember Joe Nelson?   I'm sure Perez does, because he struck out against Joe...

Card # 993:  Endy Chavez

Serial Number:  1138
28th card out of 50 for the Mariners

Endy's had more than 1 AB in his career, so that story line is out of the question.  Endy had some success north of the border. Not for the Jays, but in Montreal during the last 3 years of the Expos existence.  By the way, helluva grab by Chavez in this photo.

Card # 994:  Carlos Santana

Serial Number:  1093
34th card out of 50 for the Indians

Great looking card of Carlos in full catchers gear.  Is it just me, or does it seem that Carlos has been around longer than 4 seasons.  I've mentioned this before when posting about Santana, but the Indians are doing right by him and using him in other spots to rest his legs.  Carlos had his best fielding pct of his career in 2013, with a combined .995 at catcher and 1B. 

Card # 995:  Chris Narveson

Serial Number:  942 (as you can plainly see)
28th card out of 50 for the Brewers

It has been quite a while since I've shown a card back for a SNI post.  Since I have shown Narveson before on the blog, I don't feel so guilty.  Take a look at the ride that Narveson took before finally hitting the Brewers in 2009.    The card has eighteen lines of stats on it before his debut with the Brewers in 2009, and only one line was with a MLB team (Cards in 2006).  God  bless him for that amount of dedication.

Thanks for reading, Robert
