Sean Casey 2001 Fleer Autographics

The Mayor.
Sean Casey.

This is how autograph cards should be. On card autograph. Clear signing area. Sharp and good looking photo of the player. You know exactly who made this card and what set it is from as soon as you see it. If you bother with such sets.

2001 Fleer AutoGraphics Sean Casey is one of my favorite autograph cards. It shows Sean in the process of scooping up a short hopper from Mike Piazza for an easy out at first. The gold "I Got Religion and Money" chains jumping of the neck. Mr. Redleg smiling cause he knows Piazza just messed up hitting to Casey. I was disappointed to see Mr. Casey leave for the Pirates. But things have worked out for him. An A.L. Championship ring with the Tigers. A .529 Avg. in the World Series is nothing to sneeze at. Sean was an All-Star caliber player for the Reds from the Trade (theft) from the Indians in 1998 until his departure for Pittsburgh. He made the N.L. Squad in 1999, 2001 and in 2004. How he did not make it in 2000 is beyond my little head. It was his best stat season after 2004.

Good luck this season in the job search Sean! Looking forward to seeing you in action.
