The Phillies have announced the signing of Pedro Martinez’s old glove and a couple baseball cards, which is all that seems to remain from Martinez’s glory days.

Once the most dominant pitcher in the game, Martinez struggled in his last year with the Mets with a 5-6 record and a 5.61 ERA in 2008. However, the remnants of Martinez are hopeful to provide some value to the Phils in the final months of the season.

“We knew going into this process that we weren’t getting the Pedro Martinez of old,” said Ruben Amaro at the press conference. “I think we’re satisfied in getting our hands on his game glove and a signed rookie card that may be worth a couple bucks at some point. People still buy baseball cards, right?”
