2009 Brooklyn Cyclones Juan Centeno
Who is this? Binghamton Mets catcher Juan Centeno
What is this? An autograph card from the 2009 Brooklyn Cyclones set
Where'd I get it? I got it signed before Sunday's game between the Binghamton Mets and Trenton Thunder in Trenton
How much did it cost? The team set was $10.
Why is this so special? This is the first card I got signed from the 2009 Brooklyn Cyclones team set. Although I went to a couple of Cyclones games last year, the card set wasn't out. I didn't get one until well after the season was over.
Centeno was selected in the 32nd round of the 2007 draft, and it does not seem likely that the Mets consider him a prospect. This is Centeno's 4th professional season, and so far he has appeared in 80 career games. His lifetime line of .176 / .246 / .196 is not going to make a strong argument for more playing time, either.
Still, Centeno seemed like a good kid, so I hope that he does well. He doesn't have the best looking autograph, but you can read actual letters. With a roster, you'd probably have no problem figuring it out.
