Lame Hits: AL Central Edition

NL West, Central, and East still available.
Also AL West.

Here are a few AL Middlemen:Joe Randa - 2005 Topps Rookie Cup BLUE (39/50)
Cheap pack from Target. Underrated set from 2005. Randa was a decent player for 12 seasons.

Juan Gonzalez - 2002 Donruss Originals Gamers Jersey (442/500)
Repack box from long ago. Juan Gone was really good. He won 2 MVP awards. .295 avg with 434 HR. Maybe I should keep this one!

Justin Thompson - 1998 Pacific Invincible Platinum Blue
From ???. Interesting design from Pacific. The portrait is on thin plastic and light can show through it. Traded in a deal involving Juan Gonzalez. Pitched 4 good years then was stuck in the minors for the next 6. Made a brief appearance in Texas in 2005.

Andrew Miller - 2007 Topps Turkey Red Jersey
Hobby Box. Have I mentioned that I love Turkey Red. Mario has got this one so I'm looking for another Miller fan. He's only 24 but he is a UNC grad so that drops him a few notches on my collectibilty list.
