The National League Rookie of the Year for 1987, Santiago had the sophomore jinx the next year but still took the Silver Slugger Award with his 10 HRs, 46 RBIs and .248 average. Santiago has signed the trophy in 9-10/10 black felt tip pen on the back "Benito Santiago". Trophy in nice condition but the bat is somewhat loose.
