Melvin Rosario, 1998 Fleer Sports Illustrated #160
Melvin never made it back to the bigs after being featured on this card. He remained in organized ball for four more seasons, holding down a AAA roster spot for the Orioles, Rangers, Pirates, Royals, Dodgers, and Diamondbacks in short order. He then moved on to independent leagues, spending two years with the Northern League East's Brockton Rox and three years with the Atlantic League's Atlantic City Surf. In 2006, the final year of his career, Melvin hit .306 for the Surf. So he's got that going for him, which is nice.
