Raise your hand if you knew that Sam Dente is Rick Porcello's grandfather.  I didn't.  But thanks to wikipedia, it's another piece of trivia I'm likely never to use, but will also likely never forget.

This card has some very well rounded corners but is in otherwise pretty nice shape.  The card probably could have been better served with the solid color treatment in the background, than the attempt to color in the stadium.  All the brown with the navy and yellow accents makes for a rather drab looking card.  

Stats: 9 seasons, 585 hits, 4 home runs, 214 RBI, 252 avg.
