1992 Bowman #11 - Trevor Hoffman
Bowman's history of issuing cards of minor league players alongside those already on major league rosters leads to a lot of nonsense (which I did in fact praise a while back), but it also leads to excellent cards like this one. Who knew Trevor Hoffman was a Red? Drafted as an infielder then converted to a pitcher, we let him go to the Marlins in the expansion draft before ever getting a big league call-up. He went on to have mild success elsewhere. Bowman jumped the gun, however, and now the only official rookie card of Hoffman is plastered in red. Excellent.
