or “The Holiday Ride of Ben Revere”
Michael at Sports Syzygy swapped some Piazzamania for some cards of the Twins’ exciting outfield rookie, Ben Revere. He’ll never be a superstar (weak arm, no power) but he has good range and a lot of speed, and he had a 2011 GIBBY nominated catch that was absolutely incredible.

Michael also took care of a lot of my Topps Chrome needs from this year, plus a Mauer relic and a few other 2011 Twins, and even a couple Topps Gold from my wantlists.

Thanks again, Michael!
