Throughout this past year I’ve scoured trade bait posts, The Bench, my LCS, and eBay for reasonably priced Twins AU/GU, and Glen Perkins has extended his commanding card count lead to 46 unique autographed cards in my collection (would have been 47 if some sellers knew at least the basics of how to properly ship cards😦 ) — here are the latest pickups:
