A Cool Card Swap

This is starting to get old: for the fifth time this season, I was listening to the Twins game on Father’s Day and sent the first correct answer email for the Twins radio trivia question. This question was, “Which Twin holds the team record for runs in a season, and how many?” Answer: Chuck Knoblauch – 140


Another SportsCardFun.com-based trade: COOLBRUCE specializes in chrome cards, but had several other Twins cards to swap for some s#’d Yankees, Red Sox, and Braves. Bruce was very accommodating during a few adjustments to our trade; here are some of the featured Twins cards I received among all the Bowman chrome, some ’90s cards (always glad to cross those off the wantlists), etc.:

clockwise, from top left: 2008 Update All-Star Stitches #AS-JN Joe Nathan (jersey); 2009 SPx Game Patch Autograph #GJA-BF Boof Bonser [02/23] (patch/auto); 2002 Donruss Select Rookies & Prospects #64 Luis Rivas (auto); 1995 Score Hall of Gold #HG11 Kirby Puckett; 2008 Upper Deck SP Authentic Rookie Exclusives #RE-NB Nick Blackburn; 2003 Fleer Flair Future Fame #91 Lew Ford [08/25]

Thanks for the cool trade, Bruce!

  1. Next time you send in an answer for the trivia contest, you should ask if they could just name it after you. I don’t think Gladden could spell Rhubarb, though.

  2. Looks like Twitchy was traded to the Cowboys…
