It’s Not Easy Being Green

In the process of picking up other cards off eBay, I (barely) snagged a beautiful Harmon Killebrew AU card — my second. As it was a bit more than I normally spend, I thanked my wife for the early birthday present ;). Here it is in all its splendor:

2005 Upper Deck Baseball Heroes Emerald #34 Harmon Killebrew [11/99] (auto)

Also, with the release of this year’s Finest and Bowman Platinum, I’ve increased the number of unique Twins players AU certified cards to 178 by picking up Josmil Pinto, Lewis Thorpe, Sean Gilmartin, and an older Jack Morris card:
