NM-Mt, 1986 Topps Traded, #40T Andreas Galarraga Rookie Card.
Nicknamed "EL GATO" or "The Big Cat"
At six-foot-three and 235 pounds (1.91 m, 117 kg), Galarraga began his professional career in Venezuela at the age of 16. Despite several injuries that plagued Galarraga throughout his career, he was a very popular player both for his achievements on the field and for his big and bright smile. He was nicknamed The Big Cat (textually translated from English as El Gran Gato, although his nickname in his native Venezuela was El Gato) for his impressively quick reflexes and seamless defensive skills as a first baseman in spite of his large physical size. Galarraga was a five-time All-Star, won two National League Gold Glove Awards and two NL Silver Slugger Awards, and won the MLB Comeback Player of the Year Award after his successful return to baseball following cancer treatment.
