This continues the trend of returns from players with cards in the 2008 Upper Deck USA set. Most of the requests I sent were to high school players, 2 have come back. This return my first from a college player in the set.
Mike Minor is a junior at Vanderbilt University. Here is what his coach had to say about him: "Mike is one of the most complete pitchers that I have coached. He has three above average pitches with plus command and pitchabilty. He will be our "go to guy" and one of the top pitchers in the country. Mikie is a well conditioned athlete who has a strong work ethic." - Coach Tim Corbin
David Price pitched at Vanderbilt so it's not like Coach Corbin hasn't seen pitching talent before.
As with the other players, I sent two cards and requested he sign one and keep one for himself. Mike did just that.
