A Topps Update Un-update

The other day, I grabbed a value box of 2011 Topps Update. Among the three Yankees I pulled in the pack, this JC Romero was one of them. Only thing is, he never appeared in a game for the Yankees this year. He was signed by the Yankees in July and pitched in a few minor league games for them without earning a call-up to the Bronx. He was then released in August and picked up by Rockies. So in 2011 he pitched for the Phillies and Rockies, yet earned a card with the Yanks. This is definitely one of the weirder Yankee cards I own.
