I only added five autographed baseball cards to my collection in January, but they helped me get closer to 900 signed cards for my All-Time Mets autograph project.
In addition to my two purchases at MAB Celebrity Services’ “Pinstripe Pandemonium” show on Jan. 24, I got three signed cards through the mail.
First up we have former outfielder Terry McDaniel, who played in 23 games for the 1991 New York Mets as a late-season call up. Utilized primarily as a pinch hitter, pinch runner and defensive replacement, McDaniel managed only 6 hits in 29 at-bats. That winter, he was selected off waivers from the Mets by the Pittsburgh Pirates, but he never again played in the major leagues. In fact, he only spent one more year in affiliated minor league baseball.
