As stated in my last post, one of my baseball card collecting goals is to try and get one (certified) autographed Twins card of as many Twins ballplayers that I can. Since then, I now have an additional 221st different ballplayer.
Earl Battey is one of the autograph cards I’d been watching for for a while now. He does not have many certified AU cards, and most of those are the “cut auto” type, where his signature on a previous item (letter, contract, check, etc) is cut to size and embedded into a baseball card. The one I finally nabbed was one of these:
2006 Upper Deck SP Legendary Cuts When It Was a Game #WGC-EB Earl Battey [16/25] (auto)
And here are a few other pick ups from the last few days:
clockwise, from top left: 2018 Topps Allen & Ginter Full-Size #FSRB-MS Miguel Sano (jersey); 2018 Topps Archives Signatures #313 Max Kepler [10/86] (uncirculated auto); 2005 Upper Deck Ultimate Dual Materials #UD-ME Joe Mauer w/Estrada [07/15] (dual jersey); 2011 Topps Triple Threads Relics Sepia “AL MVP ’09 .365 28 96” #TTR-TTR-68 Joe Mauer [02/27] (jersey)
