it pains me to note that steve yeager, the catcher for the team of my youth, spent his final year in the big leagues with the mariners. that pain is tempered a bit by the existence of this very nice 1986 o-pee-chee card
dave righetti would pitch for a few more seasons, ending his career in 1995 with the chicago white sox. i don't know that i have a card of rags from his chisox days, so here's a 1993 upper deck card instead.
billy ripken, meanwhile, is protecting what's his on the back of his 1993 donruss card
tim belcher went to anaheim to pitch for the angels the following season, and he was there again in 2000, his final season. this is a 2001 upper deck victory card
david bell continued to play through the 2006 season. he finished that year with the brewers, after starting the season with the phillies whose uniform he is wearing on his 2006 topps heritage card
josh kinney had made his debut earlier that season, and was on the team's postseason roster as well, winning a ring as the cardinals beat the tigers in 5 games. he stayed with the cardinals' organization through the 2010 season, and was featured in the 2009 upper deck set
and that's how we get to callaspo, the current torchbearer of steve yeager's career. callaspo, shown here on his 2014 topps card
well, that didn't take too long...
