Michael Allen Bynum

The Red Sox drafted Mike Bynum in the 32nd round of the 1996 draft but he did not sign. He was drafted by the Padres in the 1st round of the 1999 draft. He made his major league debut August 17, 2002 against the Montreal Expos. He played for the Padres from 2002-2004, going 2-5 in 64 innings with a 7.73 ERA. He was released by the Padres in December of 2004 and before the 2005 season he signed as a free agent with the Tigers. He pitched at AA and AAA for the Tigers in 2005 and that was a career for Mr. Bynum.

Mike is seen hear in the classic follow through posed shot. I got the card signed through the mail when Mike was playing here in Portland.

Is that what the Topps gold cards looked like that year? I've never seen a card like that.
