Dontrelle Willis Goes Home Again

Dontrelle Willis just signed a minor league deal with the Chicago Cubs.  Willis was originally drafted by the Cubs.  I suppose he is technically coming out of retirement.  But, I have a bad feeling about this.  I doubt Willis will ever see another Major League inning.  My first thought upon hearing this news was of his 2002 Topps Chrome rookie card.  This is one of the few cards showing Willis in a Cubs uniform before being traded to the Marlins.  I tried to acquire this card multiple times on eBay back in the day with no success.  I still don’t own the card.  A check of eBay shows that you can’t give the card away nowadays.  A BGS 9.5 example drew no bids at $5.00.  Times have certainly changed.
