Tim Anderson has come a long way in his time with the Sox. He won the 2019 AL Batting Title, and nearly won it again in 2020. He would have given Jose Abreu a run for his money for the 2020 AL MVP award if he hadn’t gotten hurt and missed a chunk of the season.
Another one of the greatest players in Sox history, and one of the five or so best catchers in MLB history.
Minnie is one of the Greatest White Sox players of all time, and these are some of my favorite rookie cards in my collection. It’s absolutely ridiculous that he isn’t in the Hall of Fame. A Hall of Fame with Harold Baines (sorry Harold) in and Minnie Minoso out isn’t much of a Hall of Fame!
Due to my collecting hiatus, I was a bit late to the Luis Robert party. As such, every autograph I acquire costs a pretty penny. As much as I’d love to have 15 different Luis Robert autographs by now, I’ve had to pick and choose. My first autograph was the bat I posted a few weeks ago. I’ve now picked up his 2018 Bowman & Bowman Chrome rookie cards. That’ll probably be it for quite some time, unless I’m lucky enough to pick up a baseball, 16×20, or mini helmet.
While Cease is off to a rather inauspicious start, I still have faith in him. I don’t think he’ll be an ace, but I think he’ll be a solid #3/4 starter for years to come. He just has to get his walks down. That’s no easy task, but I think he can do it. So I went ahead and picked up a couple of signed rookies.
Other than a very short and unimpressive postseason start, Dunning had a very promising rookie year in 2020. While Dylan Cease was more highly touted, Dunning definitely had the better season. While I don’t think either of them will be an ace, I expect both to be mainstays of the rotation for the next few years.
I’ve added a new collection page for Sox legend Carlton Fisk! All 40 of my Fisk items can be found at the link below:
Player Spotlight: Carlton Fisk
I’ve added my first player collection page. To nobody’s surprise, Frank Thomas is up first!
You can view every Frank Thomas autograph in my collection at the link below. You’d better settle in… there are 90 of them!
After picking up Eloy Jimenez and Luis Robert bats a few weeks ago, I had an itch to get signed bats from the White Sox other star hitters, Jose Abreu and Tim Anderson. It was great timing, as the bats arrived on the same day that Abreu was named AL MVP.
I picked up a few new certified cards over the last couple of weeks. Other than Zack Collins and Jim Landis, these are the first autographs in my collection from any of these players.
