1993 Flair, Pete Incaviglia

#103 Pete Incaviglia

Here is the next card that Pete Incaviglia signed for me this summer. Pete is the manager of the Laredo Lemurs of the American Association and I was able to get him to sign three cards for me when his team visited Wichita earlier this season. I posted the first card about a month ago and it can be seen here. It will be a long time before the third card gets posted.

Pete played for the Phillies for three seasons. His best season came in his initial season there in 1993. That year, he hit a career-high .274 while clubbing 24 home runs and notching a career-best 89 RBI. Unfortunately, Pete hit a bit of a skid in the playoffs that fall. He was 2-12 with a solo home run in the NLCS. Then he went 1-7 in the World Series.

Pete has got his Lemurs playing some good baseball right now. They have won seven straight and are positioned atop the Wild Card right now. With a five game lead over St. Paul, the Wild Card is their's to lose.

This is Flair's inaugural set and it is a beauty. This is just the third card from the set that I have got signed and the first one that was not a Royal.
