He had an auspicious start to his big league career, taking the collar in four at-bats, but has rebounded mightily. A single, triple and RBI against the Yankees is a good way to make a mark on the box score.
There are not a ton of certified autographs in my collection and very few numbered ones, so this card stands alone. I traded for this bad boy a few years back and all I had to give up was some Mets inserts, I think. So long ago, who can remember? I am guessing I will continue to try and snag an IP or TTM of Avery in the future. If/when that happens, hopefully I can get something nice in return for this 1/1.
**Note: Avery's stats are as of 9:56pm when this old man went to sleep.
