1967 Topps Minnie Rojas #104

I picked this card up to add a vintage element to my Angels frankenset - Rojas pitched for the Angels for three seasons before arm problems cut short his career.

Rojas was apparently part Angels lore as he was paralyzed in a car accident, which killed his two daughters - however, it wasn't until he already left the team did the accident happen and at least his part in the long time franchise curse may have been debunked.

Rojas died in 2002 at the age of 63.
