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!

CAREER: 1/10

The guy pitched in only 6 major-league games.


  1. I knew Robinson Cano's dad played for the Astros, but I never knew he had a card.

  2. Haha 2008 wasn't even a crap year. And yeah I don't think anybody will be forgetting the Canos anytime soon. Let me know how Robbie's ass tastes. Cheers.
