Former Expo: Orlando Cabrera

cabrera-cracker-jack

2004 Cracker Jack #61
Position:
SS
Bio/Summary: I actually remember the OC’s time with the Red Sox in the latter half of 2004 best; not surprising, given that he was part of that “magic” Red Sox team, and a key contributor at that. Since then, he’s been an average-at-best contributor, one of those guys you plug in at SS and forget about. Someone we could have used at SS the last few years, in other words. I kind of wish he’d stuck around.
How Did I Get It?: A pack of 2004 Cracker Jack.
Did You Know?: He is the brother of Jolbert Cabrera and son of big league scout Jolbert Cabrera, who was reponsible for signing Edgar Renteria for the Florida Marlins.
Rating: 7/10 – This is actually one of my favorite Cracker Jacks, and I’m not entirely sure why. I like the more realistic contrast around the hands as compared to the more brushed look of the face, so maybe that’s part of it.
