1999 Just Minors Juan Melo
Who is this? Giants second baseman Juan Melo.
What is this? An autograph card from 1999 Just Minors.
Where'd I get it? Atlanta Sports Cards.
How much did it cost? A buck.
Why is this so special? Juan only played 11 games in the majors, getting one hit as a second baseman for the Giants. He played 12 years in the minors before apparently retiring in 2008. It's a great looking card though, Melo is making a play at second for the Mobile Baybears. Nice signature too. That's really all I have to say about him though, so in lieu of snarky commentary here's some Donovan in honor of Melo.
One other thing... I strongly recommend opening a pack of 1991 Fleer instead of what the hippies in the video are doing. Do cards, not drugs, kiddos!
