1992 Classic/Best, Aaron Sele
#175 Aaron Sele
Here is another card that I got signed through the mail. This will be a recurring theme here throughout my 1992 cards. I got this one when Aaron was a young pitcher with the Red Sox. He never did much with the Sox, but in his first season with the Rangers, he won 19 games and made his first All-Star team. The next three years, he won 18, 17, and 15 games and made another All-Star team along the way. He has been to as many All-Star games as Carlos Delgado. After that, he never reached double digits in wins again.
Aaron even personalized this card to me. It says "Zach God Bless!" Here is another instance when the autograph that I have and the one that Baseball Almanac has do not look even remotely similar.
This card shows Aaron as a Lynchburg Red Sox. The team in Lynchburg today is the Hillcats and the are affiliated with the Pirates.
