Mike Thurman: 2 Autographed Cards

Originally a first-round draft pick (1994, 31st overall) by the Montréal Expos, Mike Thurman was a starter with the team from 1997 until 2001 and a reliever with the New York Yankees in 2002.

At first, he wore #51 in Montréal, then #35 - and #53 with the Yankees. He signed a couple of identical cards in blue sharpie for me around 2000, and here's a closer look at card #81 from Topps' 1994 Stadium Club:
Nowadays, he's a scout for the Yankees and serves on the Board of Directors (as treasurer) for the Pacific Northwest Professional Baseball Scouts Association.
