2010 New Hampshire Fisher Cats Luis Rivera
Who is this? former New Hampshire Fisher Cats manager Luis Rivera
What is this? An autographed team set card
Where'd I get it? Rivera signed it for me after a game in Trenton last year.
How much did it cost? The team set was around $10.
Why is this so special? Rivera spent 11 seasons in the major leagues, primarily with the Red Sox and Expos. He played in 32 games for the 1994 New York Mets, backing up Jose Vizcaino and Jeff Kent.
Rivera was replaced as the Fisher Cats manager by Sal Fasano for 2011. The Kingsport Mets hired Luis Rivera to be their hitting coach this year.
Luis Rivera's autograph is very neat and precise, but I have a hard time making out his name.
