Kevin John Cameron

Look at how Upper Deck cleverly tied the clear sticker autograph into the theme of the card, it's called Clear Path to Greatness. It looks like the picture on the card was in the front room of Kevin's parents house soon after he was drafted, I can just hear his Mom saying, "Come on Kevin smile." I am not a big fan of the sticker autograph or the prom photo.

Kevin Cameron was drafted first by the Chicago White Sox in the 42nd round of the 1998 draft but did not sign. Then he was drafted by the Twins in the 13th round of the 2001 draft. He was picked up by the Padres in the Rule 5 draft in December of 2006. He pitched in 48 games in '07 and 10 in '08 with 2.91 ERA. He signed a minor league contract with the A's for 2009 and was invited to spring training.
