Lots Of Twins. Three, As A Matter Of Fact

Periodically I monitor “The Bay” for any affordable Twins autographs or game used cards, and stumbled upon a lot of Twins cards up for auction that included a few AU cards that I needed, so I made mental tally and gixen’d an amount for them. Additional I noted the seller had another lot that included several other Twins AU and early Mauer cards, and I did the same. I thankfully won both.

A week later, the same seller had another lot for auction with a fair mix of Twins and thanks to the wonders of Gixen, I snagged that as well. Between the three card lots, my collection expanded with some nice stuff, and included several dupes worthy of future trades for other Twins cards that I don’t have.

Here’s the first sample, heavy on Chris Parmelee:
