#7 - Jim Rivera

Competition for #7 was not too fierce. The only really notable players who wore #7 were Jim Rivera, Steve Sax and Kenny Williams. OK, I was kidding about Kenny Williams, the other two not so much. Sax was a good player, but he was only here for two years and his best days were mostly behind him. Although his oddest cards came when he was on the White Sox.

Jim wins this one hands down. Playing with the White Sox from 1953 until 1961, Jim led the league in stolen bases in 1955. He was runner up six times, mostly behind Minnie Minoso and Luis Aparicio. Besides, how can you not love a player nicknamed "Jungle Jim"?
