TTM Success: Jeff Weaver
Jeff Weaver fits that bill. While his time in NY was not what Yankee fans hoped it would be, I still remember how big of a deal it was when the Yanks acquired him in 2002. Many within the game viewed Weaver as a future ace, and he was just 25 and signed to a pretty reasonable deal. It was a deal the Yanks had to make when it was presented to them.
He spent a year and a half with the Yanks, then was traded to LA for Kevin Brown. He bounced around for a few more years, won a ring with St Louis in 2006, and ended his career as a reliever with the Dodgers.
Weaver signed a few cards for me c/o his home in just under a month. I love the way the Fleer card out, as the surface was perfect for a signature.
