Manny Ramirez 2009 Allen & Ginter Game-Used Mini Jersey Card
Enormously talented, and one of the most charismatic baseball players of his era, Manny Ramirez is one of the few guys that can make watching a baseball game fun on his own.
Blessed with incredible talent at the plate, Manny has put together a Hall of Fame resume that many of baseball’s greatest hitters would envy.
Just a few weeks into the 2010 baseball season(Manny’s 18th as a pro), he is on pace to join an elite group of players in the ultra-rare ‘3000 Hits and 500 Home Runs Club’. Already there with more than 500 homers, it looks like Man-Ram will eclipse the 600-HR mark before he retires. And while he is still 3 solid seasons away from joining the ‘3,000 Hits Club’, the likelihood of him reaching that goal is strong since he should be able to demand more than $20 million annually once his current contract expires after the 2010 season.
While I would not be shocked to see him just walk away from the game, I do believe that Manny Ramirez is very conscious of his place in baseball history, and becoming a member of the ‘3000/500 Club’ is something he should cherish.
The below card comes from the 2009 Allen & Ginter set. A mini, I couldn’t refuse this one when I saw it!!
