The Lesser Teams
His time with other teams was not nearly as impressive. Nevertheless, I really enjoy picking up cards of him with his lesser teams. Unfortunately there just are not nearly enough of them. He has plenty of cards with the San Diego Padres and a fair number with the Chicago White Sox, but there are very very few cards with the Colorado Rockies, Texas Rangers, and Los Angeles Dodgers, and none with the New York Mets. That is my biggest disappointment. He does have a minor league issue with the Mets organization, but that is as close as I will ever come. Granted he played in just eight games with the Mets, but that is all he played with the Padres as well.
Alomar's best cards will always be his Indians issues, but it's nice to add a little more color once in awhile to the collection.
