The Count of Monty

John Joseph Montefusco, Jr. was one of the few pitchers to hit a home run in his first at bat.  He threw a no-hitter in 1976 for the Giants, which was the last no hitter for the Giants until Johnathon Sanchez threw one in 2009 against the Padres.  He played in 63 games for the Padres in 1982-1983.  I picked up the signed card from eBay.  Steven Lewis Montgomery played two years for the A's, a year each for the Phillies and Padres. He came to the Padres in a trade with Carlton Lower and Adam Eaton for Andy Ashby.  He played in 2000 for the Padres and in 2001 at AA for the Padres where he had an 21.60 ERA and then he was done.  I got him to sign this Keebler card through the mail.
