Jim Thome card #133 1998 Bowman Minor League MVP's #11

  • Mini-milestone.  This is post #350 for the blog.  Averaging 1 post a day for the entire year is almost achieved.  It will be a bit of a push to hit 400 by December 31st, but I'm going to try to get there....
  • Jim was the 11th of an 11 card insert set featuring players that won a minor league MVP award.  Jim's MVP award was won in 1993, when he hit .332 and drove in 102 runs for AAA Charlotte.  The Knights won 86 games and the western division of the IL that year.
  • This insert set features a whos who of '90s MLB stars, Manny Ramirez, Tino Martinez, Tony Gwynn, Derek Jeter, and Vladimir Guerrero to name a few.
