2009 Binghamton Mets Jose Sanchez
Who is this? Lancaster Barnstormers pitcher Jose Sanchez
What is this? An autographed card from the 2009 Binghamton Mets team set
Where'd I get it? Sanchez signed it for me at a Newark Bears game
How much did it cost? The team set cost around $10
Why is this so special? Jose J. Sanchez has pitched professionally for seven seasons. He began his career in the New York Mets organization in 2004. He briefly made it to AAA Buffalo in 2009, his final season of affiliated baseball.
Last year, Sanchez started 27 games for the Lancaster Barnstormers in the independent Atlantic League. He was 7-11 with a 5.45 ERA.
Sanchez has a neat autograph - he signed the card on an angle so he wouldn't have to compress it.
