Jeff was selected by the Angels as the 29th pick in the 1992 draft.
He made it to the Big Team for 9 games in 1996 going 2-0 with a 7.88 ERA over 8 innings.
Jeff signed these cards for me in 10 days from his home in Madison, WI.

Somethings Wrong With This Picture

2003 Fleer Ultra #39 David Eckstein

Take a closer look at his jersey number on the card:
Seems upside-down to me.

Now THATS a 22.

Mike Trout National Baseball Card Day

Chose a bunch of cards to show off from a box of cards sent over from P-Town Tom.
Tom let us know that he had bags of cards available for trade, so I took him up on some Gold Topps Angels, and whatever Frank Tanana he had available.
All the rest were a nice bonus he included.

Almost a complete set, and I already have the Abbott, Edmonds, and Anderson, so this may actually make the complete set.

Really great cards Tom, thanks!

TTM Return Robert Kraft

I first sent a hand-written request for a signed business card but didn't include a SASE.
Never heard back.
Sent another request with a SASE and got this back in 11 days.
Draw your own conclusion.

Cool addition to the Patriots collection though.
