My favorite card here is the Daniel Nava rookie card. Nava's big league journey is amazing:
- Failed to make college team as a walk on, ended up becoming the equipment manager.
- Transferred to a junior college, and played well enough to earn a full scholarship to go back to his original college
- Went undrafted, signed with an independent league team (where he was cut from the team, but brought back)
- The Red Sox bought the rights to him for essentially $1.
- Made his Major League debut in 2010 and became the 4th player ever to hit a grand slam in his first at-bat (and only the 2nd to do so on the very first pitch)
- 2013 World Series Champion
Thanks again for the trade, John!
