Tris Speaker

One of the greatest hitters of all-time is Tris Speaker. Speaker had a 22 season career that lasted from 1907 through 1928 where he batted .345/.428/.500 with a 158 OPS+. With +134.9 bWAR, the centerfielder ranks 9th all time, just behind Roger Clemens and right in front of Honus Wagner. Speaker spent 11 of his big league years with the then Cleveland Indians, ending up with the second most hits in franchise history at 1965.

Speaker would likely get a Milestone series card for his 792 doubles, the most by any player of all-time. He could also get an Awards series card for his 1912 MVP season, which was also just the second MVP award ever. Speaker would have over 120 contact, but while he might not seem like a power hitter, he did have an above average isolated slugging percentage every year of his career after 1908. He’d also have 90+ speed as he stole 436 bases.
