Today will be another Serial History card breakdown. 2014 Bowman Chrome featured a great simple design and awesome color parallels that really popped with the borders. The black parallel depicted below is numbered to only 35 copies.
Andrew McCutchen is obviously my favorite active player and he has been since he made his debut back in 2009.
Prior to 2009 one of my favorites was Frank Thomas. As my family and I were going across some old pictures of our family after my Grandfather's passing I was amazed at how many different hats I wore as a kid.
While trying to show a sense of style I noticed I wore a Chicago White Sox hat in quite a few pictures. The reason for it was simple, The Big Hurt.
Frank Thomas was a first ballot Hall of Famer. He slugged 521 homeruns in his 19 year career. 16 of those years were spent playing for the Chicago White Sox before he spent a year and half each with Oakland and Toronto.
He finished with 2,468 hits and 73.9WAR while collecting 1,704 RBI and being one of the most popular and feared hitters of the 1990s.
Who were some of your favorite black athletes from the 1990s?
