Padrograph #1117

In December I made a bunch of customs of Padres who had not had a card with the Padres and had actually played in games for San Diego.  Eddie Oropesa is a Cuban player who defected in 1993.  He was drafted by the Dodgers in 1994 and played with St. Louis and Arizona before coming to San Diego in 2004.  He won the first major league game at Petco Park, defeating the Giants. He played in 16 games in 2004.  The Dodgers hired him in 2012 to work with newly signed Yaisel Puig.  I mailed this to him on December 31 and received it back today.  It only took 10 days to go to Miami, Florida and get back to Portland.
