Vincente and Leo

Vincente Navarro Romo came to the majors from the Mexican League.  He was originally signed in 1964 and made his major league debut with the Dodgers in 1968 and also spent some time with the Indians  in '68.  He was with the Indians until traded to the Red Sox who traded him to the White Sox.  In late '72 the White Sox traded him to San Diego for Johnny Jeter.  He played 2 seasons for the Padres and then played seven seasons in Mexico before making a comeback in 1982 with the Dodgers.  He pitched in 15 games for the Dodgers in 1982.  I think I got this card through eBay.  Leonel Rosales is a relief pitcher for the Diamondbacks, he was drafted by the Padres in 2003 and then traded to the Diamondbacks in 2007 for Scott Hairston.  He has been pitching in relief for the D'backs since 2008.  I got this signed through the mail while Leo was still in the Padres organization.

ha!i see you make the same mistake i do in referring to romo (and i do it for padilla as well) as 'vincente' instead of 'vicente'. i just recently realized my mistake while prepping a double dipper post for romo.

looking forward to seeing the 's' cards...
