Luke Christopher Carlin

I would have to say that this is the only autograph I have of anyone who has ever played for the Quebec Diamants of the Ligue De Baseball Elite Du Quebec. I got this card in trade at Heaven Sent Sports Cards in Tualatin, Oregon.

Luke Carline was drafted by the Reds in the 10th round of the 2002 draft. They released him in March of 2003 and he signed as a free agent with the Padres. He worked his way up the organization to play here in Portland in 2006-2008. Got to see him play a few times at Beavers games. He made his major league debut with the Padres May 10, 2008. He played in 36 games, getting 14 hits, 1 homer and only hitting .149. After the season the Padres released him and in January of this year he signed a free agent contract with the Diamondbacks.
