Featured autograph: Yunir Garcia

Yunir-Garcia

Signed Yunir Garcia 2006 Binghamton Mets baseball card from my collection

You probably don’t remember Yunir Garcia unless you closely follow the Mets minor league system (or one of their minor league affiliates.)

Garcia is a Venezuelan who signed with the New York Mets organization as an 18-year-old in 1998. A light-hitting catcher, Garcia spent his entire playing career with the Mets. He retired after the 2006 season, but did briefly reach the Triple-A level.

In 2008, Garcia was hired to coach the Venezuelan Summer League Mets team. In 2010, he managed one of the Mets’ Dominican Summer League teams. Over the last five years, he’s been a coach for the Gulf Coast League Mets, Kingsport Mets and Brooklyn Cyclones teams, slowly working his way up the organizational ladder.

I got this baseball card from my friend Jeff, who likely got it signed while Garcia was a member of the Cyclones’ coaching staff last season.
