Johnsons in San Diego

Benjamin Joseph Johnson was traded from the Cardinals to the Padres for Carlos Hernandez in 2000.  He made his major league debut in 2005 for San Diego, he played off and on in '05 and '06.  He was then traded for Heath Bell and Royce Ring, after that he has played up and down in the Mets organization.  I got this signed through the mail several years ago. 

Brian David Johnson was the backup to Gary Payton at Skyline High School, where the great Bip Roberts attended and is now the coach.  From there he went on to be the quarterback at Stanford University before he was drafted by the Yankees in 1989.  The Padres drafted him in the minor league draft in 1991, and he then played for San Diego for three years starting in 1994, before being traded to the Tigers.  I picked up the Leaf certified autograph from ebay.

Jerry Michael Johnson was a pitcher in the major league from 1968-1977.  He played for the Padres from 1975 and 1976 before being traded to the Jays for Dave Roberts, who had just been purchased from the Padres.  I got this card from the Bay.
