#730) JOHN MAINE
John Maine has been the victim of injury lately, but when healthy has all the stuff to be an effective member of the starting staff. "The Maine Event" was traded by the Baltimore Orioles with Jorge Julio to the New York Mets for Kris Benson on January 22, 2006. John's streak of 26 scoreless innings was the longest ever by a Mets rookie starting pitcher.
John Maine signed his card from the set for me at PNC Park in Pittsburgh. Autographing it for me prior to the Mets game against the Pirates on June 1, 2009.
