The Rookie Card Series: Dennis 'Oil Can' Boyd

**In this series we do rookie cards and nothing else.**

These two rookies came to me from reader Mike D. in a trade for some Cubs.  "Oil Can" is one of my favorite players and if he had been born anywhere else other than Meridian, Mississippi he might have been called Dennis "Beer Can" Boyd.  Apparently around Meridian beer is called oil, hence the nick name "Oil Can."

There was talk of Oil Can trying to make a comeback back in 2009 but I haven't seen any recent articles about it since then.
