    1989 Salem Dodgers auto'd team set

    Someone a long time ago asked me to scan these in, I guess better late then never. The big name in the set is Mike Piazza. The set came out very late in the season with only one or two games left so the guys I didn't get autographs of either got hurt and weren't on the team or were moved up before the set came out. These are not for sale I just wanted to share. Just for fun does anyone remember who the only 1st round draft pick in the set was?

    I remember Bill Bene had a #1 Draft Pick card in the '89 Topps set.
    Awesome set! You're probably one of only a few people in the world to have that Piazza card autographed.

    He's the one! Somewhere I have a few of his auto'd 1989 draft pick cards. I wonder what ever happened to him.

    One of the worst 1st round draft picks ever.
    Never made the majors.

    Whoa that's crazy, thanks for the update that's so surreal I remember looking up to him as a twelve year old. I guess times change.
