TTM Blast from the Past: Jorge Posada

Despite his slow start and the fiasco during the Boston series, Jorge Posada has been hitting quite well over the past month. He can still turn around a fastball, it's the off-speed stuff that was giving him trouble. However, he's been one of the Yanks' most productive hitters over the last few weeks, showing some pop and the ability to drive in runs while hitting seventh. It's a nice luxury to have in the bottom third of the order.

Posada signed these two cards for me TTM way back in 1999 when he was just a young pup and not even a full-time starting catcher yet. The signature bubbled a bit and the sharpie wasn't very sharp, but they are still pretty cool.
