Cleveland Indians CTNW Fan Favorites #1
I'm putting together 5 "Cards That Never Were" fan favorites from each team. These are not necessarily the 5 best players from the franchise. So as David Letterman used to say before Stupid Pet Tricks, "This is only an exhibition. This is not a competition. Please, no wagering."
Jim Thome is the Indians all-time homerun leader. He hit 337 of his 604 homers in an Indians uniform. The rest were hit while plaing for the Phillies, White Sox, Dodgers and Twins. He is currently filling in for Phillies' Ryan Howard who is recoving from an injured achilles.
There were several players that I wanted to add to this list. For some of them, I just could find an interesting card to make (Dennis Eckersley). Others played in Cleveland before they were called the Indians (Joe Jackson, Cy Young).
