Collection: Cesar Izturis Flair Autographics

I really enjoyed watching this guy play. He was arguably the best fielding shortstop I had ever seen wear Blue. He could move left and right with the grace and agility of a Ozzie Smith, and throw out batters in a manner I thought unbelievable. Unfortunately, his bat was not up to par.
Soon, Cesar Izturis would be traded to Chicago for Greg Maddux in 1996, and he would go on to sparkle with the glove for many more years in Baltimore, St. Louis and Pittsburgh.

Here is a 2006 Fleer Flair Showcase Autographics card of 'little' Cesar Izturis in my collection. I seem to recall Vin Scully always calling him that.
