Miguel Tejada, 2005 Donruss Classics #10
Sometimes it seems like there is no limit to the number of chances a formerly-great player can get. Consider Miguel Tejada, who just signed a minor league deal with the Marlins six days shy of his 40th birthday. This despite the fact that he now has the defensive range of a cactus, hasn't slugged above .400 since 2009, and still needs to finish serving a 105-game suspension stemming from last season's positive test for banned amphetamines. But hey, wasn't it cool when he won the AL MVP award in 2002? In case you're wondering how long ago that was, the Orioles' starting outfielders were Marty Cordova, Chris Singleton, and Jay Gibbons. Good luck, Miggi.
I can remember playing with baseball cards as a toddler, but I actually started collecting them when I was ten. Now I'm an adult looking for an outlet to talk about my hobby without receiving blank stares in return. You can contact me thusly.
