Auto Collection: Steve Finley Diamond Kings

LinkI will never forget his walk-off grand slam against the Giants in the second to last game of the season to clinch the NL West. It was monumental. Glorious. Astounding. Heck, it was breathtaking. I remember sitting at the edge of my seat, with my palms clinched like a schoolboy praying with all his might, wishing for one final hit to bring home the victory. No, strike that... the bases where loaded and the game was tied 3 to 3 with only one out. All Finley needed to do was loft a flyball to score the winning run on a sacrifice. I thought to myself, "that's not too much to ask, is it?" Well, as soon as he hit it the entire the stadium leapt up with a collective roar. We all knew it would be deep enough, but to see it leave the field was some else. Steve Finley had closed it out in the most spectacular of fashions. If you want to relive that moment go here to see a video.

Here is a very scarce 2005 Donruss Diamond Kings autograph card of Steve Finley. It is numbered 1 out of 5.
