2008 Long Island Ducks Damian Rolls
Who is this? Damian Rolls, a former infielder with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays
What is this? An autographed card from the 2008 Long Island Ducks team set
Where'd I get it? I got it signed before a Newark Bears game in 2008
How much did it cost? The team set was around $8
Why is this so special? Damian Rolls, a former first-round draft pick of the Los Angeles Dodgers, played 266 games in the major leagues between 200-2004. Since then, he continued to play in the minor leagues and eventually independent ball.
After a half-season in Bridgeport in 2006 and two years with the Long Island Ducks, Rolls played in the Northern League for Kansas City this season.
He's got a beautiful autograph, which is signed in green because I was trying to coordinate with the Ducks' team colors.
Happy New Year! I hope that 2010 is much kinder to everyone than 2009.
