ABOUT THIS COLLECTIBLE
Frank Edward Thomas Jr., nicknamed "The Big Hurt" was a stud of a hitter. Frank played for three AL teams from 1990 to 2008, (including the Oakland A's), all but the last three years with the Chicago White Sox. A 5x All-Star, he is the only player in major league history to have seven consecutive seasons (1991–1997) with at least a .300 batting average, 100 runs batted in (RBI), 100 runs scored, 100 walks, and 20 home runs. Thomas also won the AL batting title in 1997 with a .347 mark. Frank was named the AL's MVP by unanimous vote in 1993. That year, he became the first White Sox player to hit 40 home runs and led the team to a division title. He repeated as MVP in the strike-shortened 1994 season, batting .353 and leading the league in slugging average and runs. By the end of his career, Thomas was tied for eighth in AL history for home runs (521), ninth for RBI (1,704), and sixth for walks (1,667). Among players with at least 7,000 at bats in the AL, he ranked eighth in slugging average (.555) and ninth in on-base percentage (.419). With a .301 lifetime batting average, he became the seventh player in history to retire with at least a .300 average and 500 home runs. And he was inducted in the Baseball HOF in 2014. This Official MLB baseball is hand signed by Frank with his special "Big Hurt" inscription.
