Later on I got some Minnie Minoso things, and as a Sox fan could appreciate what he did for the city and for Cuba, but still it took me a while to get past OPS+ and WAR.
I see it too. Those players are larger than life, and it isn't necessarily what they did on the field.

Minoso cards, or at least the 52 Topps version, have really taken off lately. Every auction there seems to be an increase on his cards, and I don't really see that slowing anytime soon?
