2005 Bowman Kelly Hunt
I first heard about Kelly Hunt 10 years ago. I lived in Lakeland, FL, and Kelly played First Base for my hometown Lakeland Tigers. Kelly had a great year, ranking among the league leaders in HRs, 2Bs, and RBIs. During the season, I got to know Kelly, and found that we had a few things in common, including our Christian faith, taste in books, and music. After the last game of the season, Kelly gave me his bat, and we kept in touch for a few years. Kelly never made it to the Majors, but I think he deserved a card in 2005. If a few injuries would've happened in 2006, I think Kelly would've realistically been in Detroit. He tore up AA that year. Unfortunately, Kelly never got a Bowman card, so here is my version of his 2005 card.
I might make a few more cards that aren't in the 'Dick Pole Project', but rest assured, I will get back to the project shortly. Thanks for checking out today's card.
