2011 Florida Marlins Topps Heritage Minors Team Set
I picked up this set for $1.00 recently on Ebay and did not think twice about the purchase.
While small, it does feature 3 players that the Marlins had high hopes for…
Have a look:
From left to right:
1) Matt Dominguez – now with Houston and played very well in 2013. He showed off a much better bat with the Astros than when with the Marlins and their farm teams.
2) Kyle Skipworth – deeply entrenched in the Marlins farm system. Has yet to do anything worthy of a call-up. I would not be surprised if he is dealt in a trade as an added piece in the future.
3) Christian Yelich – It is all up to him. He should have a very solid shot at being the Opening Day center-fielder for the Marlins in 2014. He had a nice debut in 2013 with the team and I would like to see him batting in the #2 spot in the order to see if he can move runners over when the lead-off guys get on board. Everything I read says that this guy is a ”Stud”. I sure hope they’re right!!!
