Here are our favorite Minor League shirseys that are currently available on the MiLB shop. Make sure you click the team name to see where you can snag one of these for yourself.
Ian Happ -- Eugene Emeralds (Short Season A)
Eugene was Happ's first stop in the Minor Leagues, as he debuted with the Emeralds less than two weeks after the Cubs made him the 9th overall pick in the 2015 MLB Draft.
Yadier Molina -- Peoria Chiefs (Class-A)
The legend of Yadi began in the Midwest League -- Molina made his full-season debut with the Chiefs as a 19-year-old back in 2002.
Yoan Moncada -- Charlotte Knights (Triple-A)
Shirseys of uber-prospects are always fun. Charlotte was Moncada's first stop in the White Sox organization after being traded in the Chris Sale deal.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. -- New Hampshire Fisher Cats (Double-A)
It was difficult to imagine any prospect getting the hype that Moncada did while he was in the Minors, but Vladdy Jr. is certainly building quite the legendary reputation. He's not a Major League star like the others on this list, but he's definitely closer to that status than most 19-year-olds. All aboard the Vladdy Jr. hype train.
Rhys Hoskins -- Reading Fightin Phil (Double-A)
It wasn't long ago that the Phillies phenom was launching his dingers at the Double-A level just a short drive away from Citizens Bank Park. Now he's looking like the next Paul Goldschmidt at the Major League level.
Paul Goldschmidt -- Mobile BayBears (Double-A)
Speaking of Goldschmidt, Goldy's last Minor League stop before earning the callup to the D-backs was in Mobile, where he crushed 30 dingers in 103 games for the BayBears in 2011.
Aaron Judge -- Charleston RiverDogs (Class-A)
This sweet Riverdogs shirsey is the perfect way to commemorate the legend of "all rise" before he had even risen his way through the Minors. We know some Yankees fans don't love having names on the back of jerseys and shirseys, but this one feels OK.
Mookie Betts -- Greenville Drive (Class-A)
Betts has been on an absolute tear so far this year, taking his game to another level. But before he was a superstar outfielder, Betts was an under-the-radar second baseman. His season in Greenville was arguably his Minor League breakout and changed his career forever. Long live Mookie.
Mike Trout -- Inland Empire 66ers (Class A Advanced)
Yes, even Mike Trout was in the Minor Leagues at some point. But while Trout did play in the California League as an 18-year-old back in 2010, that was with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes. Trout's stop with the 66ers was just a four-game rehab assignment during the 2017 season. The rehab shirsey is a glorious category of memorabilia that should not go unrecognized.
