Another TTM Success

Next up I have a card I received in a trade with my buddy Joe of Jay Bell. Jay had a nice career spending time with Cleavland, Pittsburgh, Kansas City, Arizona, and ending his career with the Mets. I would imagine his personal career highlight was in 1993 when he broke Ozzie Smith's consecutive Gold Glove streak at 13 straight when he snagged the award. That same year which was his best he also took home the Silver Slugger Award. Jay was a 2 time All-Star and World Series Champion in 2001. The one thing I remember most about Jay was during the early 90's with the Pirates he lead the league in sacrifice bunts when setting the table for the likes of Barry Bonds and Andy Van Slyke.
