1984 Topps Brian Giles

Not to be confused with the other Brian Giiles.


Not to be confused with the White Brian Giles, this is the Black Brian Giles, who was a nothing special player for the early 1980s Mets.

He then vanished for years only to re-appear in the late 1990s playing for the Atlantic City Surf in the Independent League. I swear, when I saw him out there, I couldn't help but laugh.

He was out of the majors for more than a decade and then he surfaces at the Jersey shore? What are the odds? That's the beauty of independent league baseball, you never know who you are going to see.

I wouldn't be suprised if Minnie Minoso attempted a comeback someday!
