First off, congrats to Brett Graves for being drafted by the A’s in the 3rd round of the MLB Amateur Draft! They’re not the Twins, but they’re a quality organization.
Within the process of trading on The Bench and “Gixen-ing” off of eBay, I’ve managed to pick up several nice (or “n-i-i-i-i-ice”) Twins cards.
I found a couple Twins collectors to trade with that netted each of us a healthy stack of cards we needed and just as importantly, enabled us to reduce our supply of duplicates that have built up. There are still a lot of cards left on the trade page, though.
On the eBay front, I added first AU cards for Kohl Stewart, AJ Pierzynski, second AU cards for Bert Blyleven, Joe Mauer, Gary Gaetti, Harmon Killebrew, and a couple serial #’d 1/5 AU cards.
