We continue again our view of the 1990 Topps Mini League Leaders set, still in Kansas City. We've recently shown Royals Tom Gordon, Bo Jackson, and Bret Saberhagen. Now we have Kevin Seitzer, our final player for the "City of Fountains," or the "Paris of the Plains," if you buy into Kansas City's hype.
Seitzer, a two-time All-Star, played in the majors from 1986 through 1997. He led the AL in hits with 207 in 1987, his rookie season, and came in second in the AL Rookie of the Year vote (won, of course, by Mark McGwire). Seitzer played for the Royals, Brewers, A's, and Indians in those years, and hit well throughout his career, finishing with a .295 average.
Kevin Seitzer card back.
Seitzer is in this league leaders set for placing 4th in the AL in walks with 102. He also tied for sixth in games with 160 and finished 8th in on-base percentage with .387, helped, no doubt, by that penchant for walking.
The next four cards in the set are from the Milwaukee Brewers, who were in the AL back then. So Chris Bosio is up next. Thanks for reading!
