#469) CARL EVERETT
Carl Everett was traded by the Florida Marlins to the New York Mets in exchange for Quilvio Veras on November 29, 1994. The switch-hitting outfielder showed much talent, but proved to be too difficult to manage for the Mets. He was known to enter into altercations with umpires, and became known for his unusual comments. The most famous of which was his denial of the existence of dinoaurs. This earned him the nickname "C-Rex". Everett was traded by the Mets to the Houston Astros for John Hudek on December 22, 1997.
Carl Everett signed his card in the set for my good friend, Stan when the Newark Bears faced the York Revolution on August 8, 2009.
