Nineteen New Autos - 2/2

Part 1 here.

Austin Kearns was drafted by the Reds in 1998 and spent his first 5 major league seasons with em. He last plated in 2014 with the Marlins.

WIllie Greene. First 445 major league games with Cincinnati from 1992-1998. Sweet.

Zach Ward never made the majors and only pitched 32 games for the Reds farm system, 20 in 2006 and 12 in 2009. Still an acceptable collectible.

Jackson Melian had a 14 year minor league career, two of which were spent in the Cincinnati Farm. He also never quite made a major league roster.

Pat Perry had a 6 season big league career, with a very respectable 3.46 lifetime ERA. In two seasons with the Reds he pitched in 24 games.

Lloyd McClendon began his 8 uear career in 1987 with the Reds and stayed through 1988, playing in 117 games.

Jacob signed with the Reds' farm system in 1998 at age 16 and immediately saw time in the Rookie Leagues. Over an 8 year minor league career he made it as high as AAA ball with Baltimore.

Ron Villone played for a meaty 12 teams over a 15 year major league career. Two of those years, 1999 and 2000 ,were spent with Cincinnati. Also, this is my first signed MLB Showdown card. Which is worth something, I suppose. About a dollar,  come to think of it.

Go Reds.


  1. Great additions! That Greene 1993 Donruss card was one of my favorites as a kid for some reason.

    1. I liked that whole set. It was cheap enough that I could save up money as a kid and still buy a whole box of it.
