Just How Much Is A “Crapton” Of Cards?

I’m not sure what official count (or weight?) defines a “crapton” but I believe I’ve picked up a crapton of Twins in recent trades / LCS pickups / eBay wins. Among them,

  • my first autograph cards of Oswaldo Arcia, B.J. Garbe, Eddie Guardado, Roberto Kelly, Greg Myers, Alex Romero, and Loek Van Mil (tallest professional baseball player)
  • game used cards of Twins’ HOFers Kirby Puckett, Rod Carew, Brad Radke, and Kent Hrbek, plus Paul Molitor

Scans after the break (and these are just the AU/GU cards)…

  1. Not sure how much constitutes a “crapton”, but considering it’s all Twinkies, I would categorize it a ton of crap. 🙂

    Minus the Kirby and Carew stuff.

    In all seriousness, there are some quality pickups displayed.
