Collection: 1996 Roger Cedeno Leaf Signature

How many folks remember this guy?

Featured in this post is a 1996 Leaf Signature autographed card (both silver & bronze versions) of former Dodger Roger Cedeno.

Cedeno started his professional career as a Dodger prospect.  He signed as a free agent in 1991 out of Venezuela, and was being groomed to be eventually replace Brett Butler in the outfield.  Cedeno showed the brass that he had the wheels and a bat that might fit in perfectly as a lead-off hitter.  So, in 1995 he made his debut in Blue.  Unfortunately, his 4 years with the Dodgers were unspectacular.  Soon, he was shipped to the Mets for Todd Hundley, and immediately showed why the Dodgers were so high on him.  Cedeno stole 66 bases for the Mets in 1999 and batted an impressive .313.
