2008 Donruss Threads Cincinnati Reds Team Set

I saw this on eBay the other day, and probably should have bid on it. It ended up selling for just 99 cents, plus $3 shipping, so about a dollar a card. The four cards in the set are Cincinnati legends who will never be forgotten: Pete Rose, Tony Perez, Tom Seaver and Alexis Oliveras.

Wait a second.

Alexis Oliveras?

I had no idea who this guy was, so I had to look it up on baseball-reference.com. The dude is a minor leaguer, and since he is a Reds minor leaguer, will probably never be anything but a minor leaguer.

I’m glad I now know there are minor league cards in this set. I won’t be buying any packs. I’ll just pick up some singles here and there, but I don’t want to waste my time with minor league players who I’ll never hear about again.

    “”anything but ä minor leaguer”” jajaja hope one day turn the t,v and see my name on the majors and regret what u said jaja

  2. No offense was intended, but the Reds don’t have the best track record when it comes to their farm system. I hope I’m wrong and that you have a long prosperous career with the most storied team in the major leagues.
