El Cheapo: AL Central

AL CENTRAL
Most Recent World Series Victory: 2005 Chicago White Sox

Team: Cleveland Indians
Buyer: BS
Favorite Card: 1977 Hostess #69 Buddy Bell
The hack job on this one was beautiful. I'm envisioning a little kid absentmindedly cutting away on a Saturday morning during an episode of Jabberjaw.


Team: Detroit Tigers
Buyer: sewingmachineguy
Favorite Card: 2012 Topps Heritage Sticker #41 Victor Martinez
The directions on the back clearly state that you are supposed to stick this on your bike.


Team: Chicago White Sox
Buyer: Jeff Wilk
Favorite Card: 2008 Upper Deck Goudey #M-MB Mark Buehrle
Good looking card, with a pinstripe to boot.


Team: Kansas City Royals
Buyer: BS
Favorite Card: 1998 Sports Illustrated Presented by Fleer #11 A Royal Crown (November 4, 1985)
Man, the last playoff moment the Royals have had since '85.


Team: Minnesota Twins
Buyer: BS
Favorite Card: 1998 Sports Illustrated Presented by Fleer #12 The Champs! (November 2, 1987)
The Twins also got the 1991 version of this card, but they were more likable back in '87. Anything that involves the Cardinals losing is alright by me. Pitcher Roy Smith (#23) looks tentative about joining the celebration pile.

Oh yeah, that thing will be stuck to my bike.
