Collection: Koyie Hill 2004 Signs of the Future Auto

Do you remember this guy? I barely do. If I remember right, he was a highly regarded catching prospect who could hit for average and showed some punch in the minors in 2004. He belted 13 home runs in Las Vegas for the Dodgers. Instead of seeing if he might pan out, Hill was traded to the Diamondbacks in 2004 (along with Reggie Abercrombie) for Steve Finley and veteran catcher Brent Mayne. Considering Finley's assistance in the Dodgers playoff run and Koyie's inability to latch on as a starter in the Majors, I think we came out pretty good on this one.

This is a 2004 Fleer National Pastime 'Signs of the Future' autographed card numbered 190 out of 340.

  1. I remember Koyie all too well. In his five years as a Cub he's hit a less than robust .208 including .194 last season. He's hit a total of 7 home runs. Oy!
