2010 Brooklyn Cyclones Samuel Taveras
Who is this? Brooklyn Cyclones pitcher Samuel Taveras
What is this? An autographed card from the 2010 Brooklyn Cyclones team set
Where'd I get it? Kolarek signed it for me before the Cyclones' final regular season game last Sunday.
How much did it cost? The team set cost $10.
Why is this so special? The Brooklyn Cyclones finished the 2010 season with the best record in the NY-Penn League. They will play the Tri-City Valley Cats for the league championship beginning Saturday night.
Taveras began his pro career in the Mets organization in 2007 as an 18-year-old. This season, he was 2-0 with 3.86 ERA in 12 games for Brooklyn. He struck out 10 in 14 innings pitched.
Taveras has an intersting autograph -- it almost looks like he wrote a "Z" in the middle of it.
