Offseason Activity

Pitchers and catchers report shortly, and like the Twins’ front office, I’ve been busy this offseason as well. Between Black Friday purchase from COMC, visits with Mark at my friendly neighborhood Local Card Shop, and swapping card-filled padded envelopes with my Good Trading Buddy Bob from Peggy’s, I’ve added several nice cards to the collection. Figured I’d best get this post out the door before the 2018 cards hit the street…
