White Sox Photoshop Cards: AL Central Champs

Card #43 - American League Central Champions

An amazing season was capped of by an improbable last minute run for the crown, in which everything went right. This may not be the most dominant team in White Sox history, but it may be one of the luckiest.

After losing five in a row, the White Sox won their last two games to force a one game playoff against the Twins, which they won to become AL Central champions. The last three games featured three wins against three different opponents, on three consecutive days, all at U.S. Cellular Field. This will truly be a season to remember.

I chose this photo to illustrate the celebration on the field after the final out of the regular season. Injuries and domes hurt the White Sox in the playoffs, but none of that mattered at this moment. It was a time to celebrate the impossible.

This is the last card for the 2008 virtual White Sox cards. I hope that you enjoyed them as much as I did. These 43 cards feature one celebration, one manager, two All-Stars and all thirty nine players who appeared in a game for the White Sox in the 2008 season. Look for another virtual card set during the 2009 season.
