Did you hear Carmelo Anthony was finally traded to the Knicks? We're commemorating this historic week in the NBA like any group of idiots would, by paying tribute to an '80s journeyman baseball player who happens to have the same first name. Ladies and gentlemen, with career numbers of .245, 108 HR, and 454 RBI, we are pleased to recognize Carmelo Martinez with our Ebay Item of the Week.
You'd call me an idiot if I told you for $2.00 I could get you fifteen of the above pictured 1985 Topps Carmelo cards. Well, call me an idiot.
Personally, I like the gun-show Melo flashes in this '89 Topps beauty.
Remember that minor league brawl a couple of years ago, where a pitcher attempted to throw a baseball into the opponent's dugout and ending up beaning a fan? The fireworks all began when Peoria Chiefs then-interim manager Carmelo Martinez pushed the opposing manager. The pitcher? He apparently ended up getting deported.
Go get 'em 'Melo!
