Random cards. The Cuban Comet, Minnie Minoso
Minnie hit for average, got on base a lot, had a bit of power, stole some bases (although with the amount of caught stealing's, he shouldn't have), and played a good outfield. He had 3 4th place MVP finishes, was 2nd in ROY voting, and won 3 gold gloves and was a 9 time all star. He had 1963 hits. With all that and a career OPS+ of 130, he's one of those guys that might sneak into the Hall if the Veteran's Committee was feeling generous. I think he'd make the HOF a better place.
I love his full name: Saturnino Orestes Armas (Arrieta) Minoso
