These are two 2001 Royal Rookies I  got in a box lot.

Brian Schmack, a Chicago native, spent 10 years in the minors and had a brief stint as a reliever for the Detroit Tigers in 2003 where he was 1-0 in 11 games.

J.J. Putz is obviously more well known.  In 2007 he won 6 games and saved 40 for the Seattle Mariners.  Last season, with the White Sox, he went 7-5 with a 2.83 ERA.  He is currently a free agent who may end up with the Diamondbacks.  According to Wikipedia,  J.J. (Jason Joseph by the way) was a dorm-mate of Tom Brady at the University of Michigan.

  1. I love the Royal Rookies set ... they may be the worst modern baseball cards ever produced. :)
