I absolutely love Minor League Baseball! Maybe not as much as the Major Leagues, but it’s pretty close. Minor League Baseball cards eat up a good chunk of my card budget. I prefer a player’s Milb card over their MLB rookie more often than not. Now that my scanner is working again, I plan on scanning all my various sets and showing them off here. It can be difficult for Milb card collectors to find any info on old and new sets. So, as of today, Mondays will now be known as Minor League Mondays! This week’s set is the 2015 Lowell Spinner’s.
The Spinner’s are the Class A short season team for the Boston Red Sox. They are the usual landing pad for new Draft Picks. The big name in the 2015 set is the 2017 #1 Prospect in all baseball, Andrew Benintendi. Most folks know that he made his MLB debut last season and immediately had an impact. Going into 2017, it appears the left field job is his to lose. Also in this set are a few other prospects: Josh Ockimey (1B), Austin Rei (C), and Tate Matheny (OF).
