# UH 277 - John Rheinecker

I remember when John Rheinecker was going to be the next superstar pitcher in Oakland. After putting up big numbers in 2002, it looked like it wouldn't be long before Rheinecker was joining the big three (Zito, Mulder, Hudson) in the A's rotation.

Well that never happened. Rheinecker was traded to the Texas Rangers before ever making his Major League debut. He has had some health problems since and hasn't played since 2007.

John was always extremely nice when we saw him during his time with the A's. He may not be the best known card in our 08 Topps set but I think this one's pretty cool.
