1998 Lemon Chill White Sox

This set, sponsored by Lemon Chill, was a stadium giveaway during the 1998 season. It would be the first year of three consecutive sets from Lemon Chill.

The design on this set stands out among other team issued sets. The flames on the left and bottom of the card create a very distinct touch that isn't found on any other team issued cards.

The back features a large Lemon Chill logo and a complete set of 1997 stats for each destination of each player. For instance, Robin Ventura's stats for Birmingham and Nashville are presented for his minor league rehab assignment during the 1997 season, as well as his stats with the White Sox.

This set also features one of the first cards of Magglio Ordonez. We also see Bryan Ward wearing number 56 a few seasons before Mark Buehrle would permanently take it over.

The team set consists of thirty cards. They are listed by uniform number.

Wallace Johnson used to be an Expo. He was a great pinch hitter.

Are you sure those are flames? They look sort lemony, as if the card was dipped in lemon chill? ;o)
