You doesn't hasta call me Johnson! (Part 2)

Continuing this ridiculous series of players named Johnson. Remember, it's just an excuse to show off my cards.

1992 Stadium Club Dome #92 Howard Johnson
 Johnson played 14 years, 9 of those years with the Mets. He won 2 World Series, with the Tigers in 1984 and the Mets in 1986.

2004 Leaf Press Proofs Blue #6 Jason Johnson
Here's a guy I don't know even though he had an 11-year career. 5 of those years were with the Orioles. The other 6 years were with 7 different teams. He finished with a 56-100 career.

1992 Pinnacle Rookies #10 Joel Johnson
Here's another guy you never heard of. A few months ago I had bragged about completing my 1991 card collection. I'm hard at work on the 1992 cards. I picked this 30-card set, in it's original shrink-wrapped box for $3.99. Most of the players in the set, unfortunately, are about as famous as Joel.

2001 Bowman's Best Exclusive Rookies #194 Jonathan Johnson
Isn't this a nice looking card? Serial numbered, a hot rookie. Hot dog I said in 2001. Oh, well. Jonathan never made it out of the minors.

2003 Bowman Draft Picks Gold #83 Josh Johnson
Here's a Johnson who hasn't been a bust. In 7 years with the Marlins, he's a 2-time All-Star with a 48-23 record and a 2.98 ERA.

2011 Topps Allen & Ginter #129 Kelly Johnson
Second baseman currently with the Blue Jays.

1997 Score Premium Stock #237
14 year career with a .291 career average and 327 stolen bases. Retired in 2000.

1995 Pinnacle #174 Mark L. Johnson
He was the White Sox #1 Draft Pick in 1997 but spent his 8-year career as a back-up catcher.

1997 Bowman Chrome #222 Mark J. Johnson
What are the odds that two guys named Mark Johnson would be #1 Draft Picks in 1997. Mark J. was picked by the Astros, traded to the Marlins with others to get Moises Alou and ended up with a 2-month career with the Tigers.

2004 Diamond Kings #119 Nick Johnson

2003 Fleer Hardball #233 Randy Johnson
We'll finish this chapter with one of the most famous Johnson.
