Marty and Kevin

Marty Lee McLeary is one of the oldest active players that I know of.  Marty is 36 and played this season in the Brewers organization.  Marty pitched in 3 games in 2004 for the Padres and had a 14.73 ERA in those games.  He again played in the majors in 2006-07 for the Pirates. He played for New Hampshire and Las Vegas for the Jays before going to Nashville for the Brewers.  I got this signed card from a dealer on eBay.  Walter Kevin McReynolds was part of the Padres outfield that was supposed to be together for awhile, McReynolds, Carmelo Martinez and Tony Gwynn.  The only one that lasted was Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn.  McReynolds played 4 seasons in San Diego before being traded to the Mets, along with Adam Ging and Gene Walter for Kevin Brown, Shawn Abner, Kevin Armstrong, Stan Jefferson and Kevin Mitchell.  McReynolds played five season in New York before being traded to the Royals, where he played 2 seasons before being traded back to the Mets.  He finished his career in 1994 with the Mets.  I got this Mothers' Cookies card signed through the mail
