Trini House on baseball cards

Outfielder Trini House played two seasons in the Brewers organization, hitting .295 with 13 HR, 89 RBI and 21 SB in 165 games. Now a youth baseball coach in Maryland, he kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.

"You can find a few of my cards on the internet. A Bowman gold rookie card under the name Howard House and a few others under the name Trini House."

 
Thanks!

  1. Thanks for posting these. In those 2 seasons I was voted Arizona League MVP and Topps Minor League Player of the Year. Brings back memories. I actually had reconstructive shoulder surgery & two other surgeries in '93 which kept me from playing then I was optioned to the AA Texas Louisiana League where I played for the Harlingen Whitewings. I led the team in stolen bases, rbi's and home runs before I had to retire for medical reasons; doctors said Ki would most likely never be aboe to affectively throw a baseball again.

    So now along with being a high school baseball coach, I am a sales manager for a sporting goods company.

  2. It almost looks like Mr. House is wearing a hockey sweater in that top photo. I had a few those early '90s rugby style shirts, too.

  3. It appears the only two other card made of Mr. House were from the 1992 Classic Best Beloit Brewers team set, and then a 1994 team issued card from the White Wings. I'm always curious when I see pretty good stat lines for a young player, and then they just disappear from the sport (at least that's how it looks a couple of decades later). Thanks for filling in some of the gaps, Mr. House!
