#220) LUIS ROSADO
Luis Rosado was signed as an amateur free agent by the New York Mets on May 5, 1972. "Papo" was a very charismatic first baseman who only played two seasons in the major leagues. Appearing in a total of only 11 games during that time. One of these appearances was even behind the plate when he started the game as the catcher on September 28, 1977. Papo Rosado was sent by the Mets to Poza Rico of the Mexican League before the 1981 season.
Luis Papo Rosado returned a handwritten note to me from an autograph request sent to his home in Puerto Rico on January 31, 2008. I created his card in the set from that cut signature.
