1986 Las Vegas Stars (ProCards)

Check out my newest post on The Hall of Very Good - and a chance to win a free DVD of the movie Knuckleball.

The Stars were the AAA affiliate of the San Diego Padres. Benito Santiago was the big star in the set.

Weird to see Steve Kemp in a Padres uniform. He never played in the major leagues with San Diego.
 The front of Steve Lubratich's card gives no indication of his role with the team. Maybe the back will be more informative?
 Nope. For the record, after playing 64 games for the Stars in 1985, he spent 1986 with the Padres AA team in Beaumont, playing 45 games.
 There were lots of cards with pitchers batting, some with helmets.
 There was only one card of a pitcher posing as a catcher.

  1. As somebody who has seen a lot of Santiago cards, I'll say this: that is a great Santiago card.
