Jordany Valdespin was a nice little player until attitude and various altercations got the best of him. Valdespin Is currently a Marlin. Love the card though!
This next card Is a 2009 Bobby Parnell Topps Finest Auto Patch numbered 50/75.At first glance,I hadn't realized that the patch was autographed.Then I realized It was numbered 50/75.Then came the expletives.
Allen & Ginter was a brand I stayed away from since their 2006 revival.I loved the way they looked but was too hooked on Bowman Draft and Turkey Red at the time.I'm probably In the "Met fan" minority when I say that I actually liked the signing of Gary Sheffield.At the time we really needed a power bat and Gary provided some pop and excitement ,hitting his 500th HR In Citi Field.Paul Lo Duca Is the shizz,period.I loved him as a Met and hope Travis d can pick up where he left off.
Billy Wagner was such a gamer.If I could choose one word to describe him It would be "fearless".No worries when Wags came out of the pen to seal one up for the Metsies.
Wrapping up this first part of a two part post,we have Kaz Matsui.Matsui was solid with the Mets and provided speed and a good glove.
Tomorrow I'll be posting part two of my trade with Matt over at Bob Walk The Plank ,really the meat and potatoes of an overall awesome trade package.Stay tuned!
