Drafted by the San Francisco Giants in the 7th round of this year's MLB draft was the familiar name of Jose Vizcaino Jr. I recently got to see him play in A- ball in the minors as Vizcaino's team beat my team by a narrow margin. Many people might remember Jose Vizcaino Sr. who played for 8 different teams over an 18-year career between 1989-2006--mostly for the Dodgers and Astros. Vizcaino has one World Series ring with the 2000 Yankees in 2 WS appearances, 3 LCS's, and 6 LDS's. Vizcaino's regular-issue Topps rookie card was in 1992, but he also had a Topps Debut card in 1990, which is perhaps his true Topps rookie.
