Bye-bye Balboni! Ah, the early 90s Yankees - when even the only hitters with power were called upon to bunt.

I have a million (actual number) Carlos Quintana "Rated Rookie" cards from the '89 Donruss set. I wonder if Josh Wilker would be interested in a hundred of 'em?

Shaun, the good news is that in some parts of Venezuela a Carlos Quintana "Rated Rookie" card can be used as currency...the bad news is that it takes a wheel barrow full of them to buy a cup of coffee... ;-)
