I originally grew up in northern Iowa and was
only 200 miles from Minneapolis / St. Paul so I was able to see alot of
pro games and being the Minnesota Twins were the home town favorites they
were my team as well. I have seen Harmon many times and when I was still
a young lad I had a baseball autographed by him. Needless to say nobody
told me not to play with it and so I did. I played baseball up until my
junior high when I was disabled with a hip injury which pretty much ended
my track & baseball. When my 2 boys were growing up I would take them
to see the Twins and they loved it, then we started collecting baseball
cards "1990 time line" and my oldest boy liked the Chicago White Soxs &
I liked the Twins "Kirby Puckett". So we would see Frank & Kirby play
every time the Soxs played the Twins. At one time we had the biggest Frank
Thomas collection in northern Iowa and a good sized collection of
Pucketts, as we started setting up tables at local card shows as at that
point in time the internet wasn't in full stream like it is today, so that
was the place to trade cards and so we did up until the late 1990's when
the trading card companies came out with so many verities of cards and
inserts it was hard to be a dealer so we backed out and eventually sold
our collection due to divorce issues. Now it's time for me to regain cards
and start collecting back up again. "all done paying child"
this collection will just be graded minor,rookie cards and autograph
cards and well anything that catches my eye, cool GU and whatever.

I'm looking for Minor League,RC's,Auto's of Minnesota Twins Draft Picks/Rookies/Active Alexi Cassila / Delmon Young / Matt Tolbert / Chris Parelee / Jason Kubel / Justin Morneau / Joe Mauer / Carlos Gomez / Jose Morales / Wilson Ramos / Trevor Plouffe just to name a few.
