Padrographs #1151 and #1152

 #1151, Roberto Pena.  Roberto was drafted from the Phillies in the 1968 expansion draft.  He was traded to the A's for Ramon Webster in 1970.  He is one of the last two players I need from the 1969 roster.  I got this from eBay.  

#1152, Colin Young.  Colin Young is the left handed batting practice pitcher for the Padres starting just before the season started.  He previously played in the Rockies system from 1999-2007.  I had read an article about him and two friends in the Athletic.  We went to Seattle the end of March to see a couple of exhibition games against the Padres.  Seems Colin was having his tryout for the job at those two games.  Then there was another article about him in the Athletic.  I made this card and sent it to him c/o of the Padres and got it back in a couple of weeks, I sent it when they were on the road.
