#326) JOE SAMBITO
Joe Sambito, who was born in Brooklyn, joined the New York Mets when he was signed as a free agent on April 26, 1985. He had been a successful pitcher with the Houston Astros for several years before that. Joe's time with the Mets was limited to only eight games coming out of the bullpen before he was released on August 23, 1985.
After his retirement from baseball in 1988 he has become a player agent working for SFX Baseball Group, Inc.
I purchased this signed index card from the legendary autograph guy, Jack Smalling and converted it into Joe Sambito's card in the set in January 2009. Jack's website is www.baseballaddresses.com
