Few have ever broken in with a bigger bang than Jose Canseco in 1986 when he piled up 33 homers and 117 RBIs and won the American League Rookie of the Year award in a close vote over Wally Joyner. Two years later, entrenched in the A's batting order with Mark McGwire, Canseco won the MVP award and continued on a path to greatness...or so it seemed. Then came steroids, wife-abuse convictions, rumors about Madonna, injuries and a hard fall from grace. Still, Canseco's Rookie award is a reminder of what could have been and a time when Canseco lit up Oakland with his "juice." The pristine, mint condition award stands 4 x 6" and is made of solid tapered glass 1 1/2" thick at its widest. A gold Sporting News medallion is encased in the glass and on the lower front is a black panel personilized with Canseco's name. Comes with LOA from Canseco and a photo of him receiving the award.
