James Jarvis Jefferson

Donald Chris James was traded for some big names during his career.  The Phillies traded him to San Diego for Big John Kruk and current Padres hitting coach Randy Ready in June of 1989. Then in December of '89 the Padres packaged him with Sandy Alomar, Jr and Carlos Baerga to get Joe Carter from the Indians.  There must of been a perception that there was an upside to James.  I got this card back in the mail, just after I had picked one up on eBay, because the return was taking so long.K
Kevin Thomas Jarvis was a starting pitcher for all three years that he was with the Padres from between 2001 and 2003.  He signed as a free agent with the Padres in 2001 and was traded to the Mariners in January of 2004 in a multi player deal.  I got this Keebler card signed through the mail.
Stanley Jefferson was on duty as a member of the New York City Police Department on the morning of September 11, 2001 and worked on the recovery effort at Ground Zero.  He was of many members of the NYPD who suffered health problems as a result of working at Ground Zero and had to retire from the department in 2004.  What Stan Jefferson did between 1986 and 1991 pales in significance to what he did between 1997 and 2004 as a member of the NYPD.  I do not know how I acquired this card
