Young Superstars #11 - Stanley Jefferson

This is another good card with the combination of great photo on the front and back. The potential that Jack McKeon mentioned on the back never came to fruition as Jefferson bounced around through six different teams in six seasons.

He's probably best remembered as a potential replacement player during the '94 strike.

From 1997 until 2004 Jefferson was an officer in the New York Police Department and saw action on 9/11/01 and developed health problems as a result.

Stanley Jefferson's career statistics

Holy Crap I can't type...

Here's some irony for you. The quote from McKeon on the back suggests that Jefferson could steal 60 bases in a YEAR. Guess how many he had for his career? Yup....60.

Ha! So far we've seen some guys who had less than spectacular careers, but no one yet who was a complete flop.
