2000 Topps #P18 David Newhan

The Phillies signed David Newhan to a minor league deal yesterday. David will serve as a player/coach for the Phils' AAA team in Lehigh Valley. He was originally acquired from the San Diego Padres in August 2000 for infielder Desi Relaford. David played a whopping 17 games with the Phillies in 2000 and 2001, hitting .217 with 1 RBI. He's played with the Orioles, Mets and Astros since.

I wanted to post a Phillies card of David, but the only Phillies card he had was a 2000 Pacific Omega card where he's pictured in a Padres' uniform. This original 2000 Topps card was created using his picture from the Phils' 2001 Yearbook.
