A Twins Treasure Trove Turns Up from Tulsa

Not long ago, I responded to a team dump request from Cameron at Reds and more…, and started pulling Reds cards to send in return. When I got back from my latest business trip (to Omaha, of course), a big ol’ box of Twins was waiting for me. Upon opening it up and seeing three autos and an Xfractor laying on the top, I knew that I’d have to swing by my local card shop and augment my return package!

While it was a team dump, and contained the expected mid-80s to mid-90s junk wax, there was a whole lot more than that. There were enough late-90s and 2000s cards from my wantlists to make this an exciting trade. Especially appreciated were the several Bowman cards, 2010 Allen & Ginters, a couple serial #’d cards, and a variety of base cards that I was missing.

While I might not have the volume of Reds cards to return, I had enough oddball stuff that I can guarantee Cameron will find a few things that he needs.

Cameron, you overwhelmed me with this one. Thanks for the generous trade, and hopefully my return package contains at least a small fraction of the value that yours did. I’ll keep you in mind should any other neat Reds cards turn up here!
