ABOUT THIS COLLECTIBLE
Kevin Mitchell was a raw baseball talent capable of amazing things on the field. Raised by his grandmother, the short, squat Mitchell used baseball to escape the violent San Diego street gangs of his youth, but not before collecting three gunshot wounds as a member of the notorious Syndos. Originally drafted by the NY Mets, Mitchell played six different positions for the World Champion New York Mets in 1986 (hence his nickname "World"), including 24 games at shortstop, finishing third in the NL Rookie of the Year voting. On July 4, 1987, Kevin was traded from San Diego to San Francisco and belted a pair of homers in his Giants debut. Kevin went on to hit .306 the rest of the season as the Giants won the NL West. However, the 1989 season was the pinnacle of Mitchell's career. After two seasons playing primarily at third base, he had his best season with the Giants in 1989 upon being moved to the outfield. In that season, he batted .291 with a league-best 125 RBI and 47 home runs, leading the team to the playoffs and winning the National League's MVP Award, the first by a Giant since Willie McCovey in 1969. He added a .353 average and 2 homers in the NLCS to help the team to its first World Series appearance since 1962. This official MLB Baseball is hand-signed by Kevin with his special "NL 1989 MVP" Inscription. The ball is also available with a customized SF Giants case that highlights Mitchell's MVP Award. OR YOU CAN CREATE YOUR OWN PLATE! Our quality cases include black or mahogany-colored wood base, mirrored bottom, UV-protective glass and ball stand. A great collectible from a very popular Giant and the perfect gift for any longtime fan.
