Autograph request through the mail received: Steve Karsay

Steve Karsay c/o home address - signed three cards in blue Sharpie including a 2001 Fleer Tradition card for my set in about about a couple of months.

I remember Karsay in the early 1990s as a high profile draft pick for the Toronto Blue Jays - after being traded to the Oakland Athletics for Rickey Henderson in 1993, he was supposed to be part of the rebuilding program in Oakland as a future ace perhaps.

Karsay was out for much of the 1994 season and had to get Tommy John surgery in 1995
- he did put together a string of four serviceable seasons as a reliever from 1999-2002, but another injury suffered in 2003 was the beginning of the end for his Major League career.
