2014 Donruss Signatures Oscar Taveras
We've mentioned a few times the tragedy of Oscar's death. With the young Cubs threatening to become the powerhouse of the National League Central Division, it causes us as fans to question what might have been. It is all too easy to get caught up in our fandom and overlook the real tragedy: a young man lost his life. Although Oscar had the potential to be a superstar, he was a human being not a comic book superhero. On October 26, 2014, many people lost a family member or a dear friend and, regardless of what the Cardinals win-loss record is in the years to come, the pain of the fans' struggles will never eclipse the pain of those who knew him.
