Tony was thought of so highly early in his career that he was placed on this Donruss Triple Play Medalists card with fellow super-shortstops Cal Ripken and Alan Trammell. And if you will notice, it's Tony who got the gold medal, not the other guys. And get this: His 1999 season, which (for a time) looked like it would be his last in the major leagues, produced career highs in doubles, runs batted in, bases on balls, on-base percentage, and batting average! And it's not like that was an anomaly, either, because it was almost a carbon copy of his 1998 season. Why didn't somebody re-sign this guy? Well, after spending the 2000 season in Japan (finishing fourth in the league with a .327 average), Tony came back for one last fling with the Blue Jays in 2001, for whom he played four separate times. More cards from his All-Star career are pictured below.
