Good Morning all. Just a quick post this morning before I head off to bed being I just got done with work. Yes I work midnights or the overnight schedule for my job.
Probably wondering by now with what's that title all about. Well it has to do with one of the players on the card below that I just got in from eBay this past week. It is also the first auto of his in my collection and it was picked up quite cheap an easy on a best offer.
Let's go over some quick stats of the below player before I reveal his name and card. His career average is .296 and he batted over .300 7 times in his career and is eligible for the hall since 2011 on the Veterans Committee after being retired now for 20 plus seasons.
Anyone have any guesses who the player Im referring to is? Yes no? Well here's a little bit more info he appeared on Seinfield an was accused as being the spitter by Kramer and Newman.
Give up or do you know who it is?
It's Mex himself Keith Hernandez. Sorry for the dark photo. At least he signed completely on the sticker.
The other guy on the card is Casey Kotchmn a top 100 prospect back in the early 2000s with the Angels. He was ranked as high as 6 on that list. After spending 4 years with the Angels from 2004 to 08 and being in the bigs with them from 06 to 08 and he never spent more than a year with a team once traded at the end of 08 and finally retired in 2013 with the Miami Marlins. Too bad he couldn't stay healthy from his bout with mono to recovering from mono to being beaned in the head by Russell Martin an needing stitches in a pick attempt at second. He did does hold the record for most consecutive putouts without an error at 2379.
Well that's all I got for now and keep an eye to the blog as there is more incoming mail from ebay along with a few posts about box busting and maybe a few packages that I receive in the coming days.
Have a great workday.
This guy is out. Zzzzzzz
