|2008 Topps Updates & Highlights #UH281|
Big-time thanks to Bert of Swing And A Pop-Up for providing the fodder for today's Daily Fix (which has become not-so-daily, I suppose...sorry!). A nice PWE containing the very Chris Aguila card you see today, which is just right for my All-Time Mets Project.
Aguila, originally a third-round draft choice by the Marlins, put on the orange and blue for a brief time in 2008, appearing just eight games for the Amazins that season. He went 2-for-12 with two walks as a Met. And then, like Keyser Soze, he was gone.
The fact that a guy with just 12 ABs got a card is both troubling and wonderful, depending on who you ask. I'd side with the latter characterization, since I'm a collector and I think every player who puts on the uniform should get a card. The more, the better!
Thanks for the great addition to the Project, Bert!
