1989 Topps Major League Debut #22: Jose Cano
Jose Cano, don't ya know?
This guy is the dad of current Yankees' 2B Robinson Cano, which shocks me because I had no idea until I wrote this post. Of course, the younger Cano had such a crap year in 2008 that the Canos might become altogether forgotten soon enough.
PHOTO: These crazy borders actually work with this card, because we have all of the Astros rainbow colors reproduced on the cards.
STAT: Cano had such a short major league career that I'm not even going to bother looking for a stat. But check out his minor-league numbers. After fizzling out of the Astros system in 1990, he pitched in Taiwan 8 years later at age 36. Wow!
The guy pitched in only 6 major-league games.
