Triple H, Not Paul Levesque

Cedric Scott Hunter played in Portland in 2007 and I didn't get to see him play the three games he was here for.  For some reason he went back to high A and AA the next two years.  Maybe he will be in Portland for more than three games this year.  I got the card from a store in Tualatin, OR called Heaven Sent Sports.

Stephen Michael Huntz had an interesting career in major league baseball.  He played 3 games for the Cards in 1967, 71 games for the them in 1969, 106 games for the Padres in 1970, 35 games for the White Sox in 1971 and then in 1975 he played in 22 games for the Padres.  I got him to sign this 1976 SSPC card through the mail.  This is one of my favorite sets, portraits mostly but there was something about them that makes them stand out from the Topps cards of the same year.
Bruce Vee Hurst had 8 RBI and hit .113 in a career that got him inducted into the Red Sox Hall of Fame.  He pitched about two and a half seasons for the Padres although a chunk of that was spent on the DL following rotator cuff surgery.  I got this signed through the mail years ago.  I like cards of pitchers smiling, one of my all time favorite cards is the 1972 Topps in Action card of Tom Seaver.

Pretty sure Hunter will be seeing some time in AAA this year.
