Long-lost treasure II: More Major League minor league cards

The off-season is like watching Major League: Back To The Minors – you just can’t wait for it to end.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not the worst baseball movie I have ever seen — even if it takes the Major League name created by my boys, my Cleveland Indians, and stomps it into the ground complete with a bee sting in the ass.

From the mascot? We could only be so lucky — that’s one big bee. (And he’s got an attitude as you can see at left.)

It’s worth watching once, OK maybe twice, just so you can get the full impact of computer-generated baseballs — from the pitcher’s hand to the plate and off the bat and into the outfield — along with Ted McGinley.

The Ted McGinley.

(Can’t hate Scott Bakula, err Gus Cantrell … he’s all this movie’s got.)

If it had nothing to do with the Major League franchise, then some of the players might be acceptable, funny, characters. But what they did to Pedro Cerrano once again?

And how did Roger Dorn find all that money to buy the Minnesota Twins when “that bitch” Rachel Phelps took him to the cleaners when he owned the Tribe? And when did Harry Doyle lose his job in Cleveland?

Painful.

But at least there are baseball cards.

See them all below.

Exclusive Discovery: The long lost 1990 Upper Deck Major League cards

Hot off the heels of yesterday’s landmark — some might say exclusive (but it’s much, much bigger than that) — find, we have gotten our hands on the cards that were intended to be in the 1990 Upper Deck baseball set.

These feature the stars of Major League II — a few guys you have heard of and, based on the box office attendance, some guys you haven’t.

(We won’t mention that the sequel came in 1994 — Major League II documents my squad’s second pennant-winning season, which is firmly 1989.)

I feel the same way every time I watch Major League: Back to the Minors.
