until I opened the pack.
Ah, yes. I see these all the time when I'm digging in the 5 for a dollar bins.
I know these are minor league players before they've made it to the Bigs, but it seems that I never find a card of a guy that I'm sure has made it to the Majors, even as a "minor star".
Let's see if any of these have.
Steve Foster - yep 1991-1993 Reds.
Anthony Dela Cruz - nope.
Ken Lewis - nah.
Pedro Munoz - 7 years, 6 with the Twins. There's my minor star I suppose.
Mike House - nope.
Jaime Roseboro - never made it.
Lem Pilkenton - Only 2 Lems and 1 Lemmie have ever played in the MLB and this guy wasn't one of them.
Chris Butler - no.
Michael Maksudian - He doesn't look like a Major Leaguer, but he is! 1992-1994.
Ed Zambrano - Yes, 2 years with the Cubs, 1993-1994.
And the back of Steve Fosters card so you can see what the back looks like.
A little background from the 2010 Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards says that with the first series Star became the first card company to venture into minor league cards.
So this is the second series to the trailblazing first issue.
