Card of the Day: 2/4/16

2001 Fleer Tradition #119 Fernando Tatis

     2001 was the last year Tatis appeared on base cards in a Cardinals uniform. He was traded at the end of the 2000 season to the Montreal Expos for Dustin Hermanson and Steve Kline. Hermanson didn't amount to much, but Kline did pretty well for the Cardinals. More importantly, the trade allowed Placido Polanco to move over to third base and improve his stock. Polanco averaged better than .300 at the plate and was a major piece in the trade with Philadelphia to bring Scott Rolen to St. Louis.
