The hazel eyes of Lonestarr, that is. The proprietor of Behind These Hazel Eyes contacted me about the Cubs trade bait post from a while back, and for a couple relic cards and some other Cubs paraphernalia, I became the recipient of a Twins team dump. Well, and some other nice cards I needed, too — among them my first Twin from the Pack Wars set, first Sweet Spot Update card, first Fleer Legacy card, a couple autos (“The Real Deal” Durbin!!1!), and several TriStar cards (including a Ben Revere parallel #’d to 50). I don’t actively collect Twins minor league cards, but I also don’t turn them down.
clockwise, from top left: 2004 Fleer Legacy #52 Joe Mauer; 2007 Upper Deck Future Stars Clear Path to Greatness #150 Garrett Jones; 2008 TriStar Projections Green #110 Ben Revere [40/50]; 2004 Donruss Studio Private Signings #110 J.D. Durbin [134/250], “The Real Deal”
One of these cards is not like the other…

Thanks for the trade, Lonestarr! Keep your (hazel) eyes open for any other Twins cards in the future.
