About two week turnaround from the newest member of the Baseball Hall of Fame

Pat Gillick 2/2

1 GU OMLB SS w/ HOF 2011
and 1 index card also. The index card is for Arron(elmesero) and I told him I would give it to him but he has to make some kind of cut custom card.Not sure if the auto is too big to pull that off; but we shall see!! :) I figured I needed to keep the kid on his toes...ha ha

Gillick had quite a storied career as a Baseball front office guy. I always remember those Blue Jays teams in the early 90s...

Congrats on the success. I'll do my best to pull of a cut. I'm quite sure how to begin. This may require some research...Lol.

Awesome success, Chris! I knew Gillick was going to be a good one when the Blue Jays quickly drafted the Indians hottest player, Rico Carty, in the expansion draft in the winter of '76. Gillick headed up player personnel for the Jays, at the time, and was the instrumental player involved in the drafting of Carty and the trading of Carty back to Cleveland. You see, the Indians figured no one would take Carty because of his age and left him unprotected in the first round. Tribe fans were furious when they let Carty get away. He was, after all, at the time...their lineup. To get him back, the Indians had to give up two up and coming players, Rick Cerone and John Lowenstein, who wound up having some pretty solid careers. Gillick always had a great eye for talent.
