Baseball: 1986 AL Stars

  I really liked how the 1986-87 OPC Howard Johnson came out.  So I decided to do one for each team.  I didn't realize how many teams use blue and red as their primary colours.  I also think I could have gone with a dark green for the text on Canseco.  Now to start work on the stars of the NL.

Baines was a triple crown winner for the lowly White Sox, 21 HR, 88 RBI, .296 Avg.
Barfield led the majors in home runs with a career best of 40. 
Boggs hit a league best .357.  He hit .350 of better in 4 consecutive seasons.  He's also of my favourite players so I did him a card instead of AL MVP and Cy Young winner, Roger Clemans.

Brett struggled through injuries but still posted a .401 on base.
Rookie of the year Canseco swatted 33 homers and 117 RBI.
Carter hit 29 Hrs and led the majors with 121 RBI.  

Higuera won a career best 20 games in his sophomore season.
Mattingly hit 31hr, 113rbi, .352 avg and a ML leading .967 OPS.
Oddibe led the Rangers with 105 runs scored and 33 stolen bases.


Presley led the basement dwelling Mariniers with 27 HR and 107 RBI.
Puckett hit a career high 31 HR, and won his first of six Silver Slugger awards.
Ripken led all major league shortstops with 25 HR and 81 RBI.

Trammell hit 21 HR and stole 25 bases while leading the Tigers with a .277 avg
Witt led the AL winning Angels with 18 wins and was a Cy Young finalist.
