Hello! I am a newly minted (ha) baseball card collector interested in collecting Twins (and Mariners and Blue Jays) cards from all eras, along with small sets, especially those created by non-traditional publishers like cereal companies.

Players I'm looking to collect cards for:

  • Dave Stieb (cards owned: 86)
  • Rich Hill (cards owned: 8)
  • Lonnie Smith (cards owned: 55)
  • Joe Mauer (cards owned: 9)
  • Joe Ryan (cards owned: 6)
  • Jose Miranda (cards owned: 5)
  • Kirby Puckett: (cards owned: 67, including one autograph)
  • Jhoan Duran (cards owned: 4)
  • Ichiro (cards owned: 10)
  • Ken Brett (cards owned: 4, including one duplicate)
  • Bert Blyleven (cards owned: 13)
  • Carlos Correa (cards owned: 7)
  • Byron Buxton (cards owned: 9)
  • Ken Hrbek (cards owned: 32)
  • Steve Jeltz (cards owned: 12)
  • Pablo Lopez (cards owned: 6)

Types of cards I'm generally interested in:

  • Players featured in "The Baseball 100" by Joe Posnanski.
  • Players born in Minnesota.
  • Players who attended the University of Minnesota.
  • Players who have played for ten or more different teams.
  • Players in the Hall of Fame (and Hall of Fame-caliber players who won't get in for PEDs or other reasons).
  • Players in the "Hall of Very Good" (players who are nearly good enough to get into the Hall but not quite).
  • Cards with artwork and not photographs.
  • Cards with creative photography (or bad photography).
  • Cards with questionable graphic design or layout.

Not all of my cards have been added to my collection; the ones I haven't added are mostly commons. My wantlist is very big and broad, I will be making a list with my most wanted cards at some point soon. However, I won't be disappointed if I receive any card on my wantlist. I am a college student, so it may take me some time to get through all the steps of a trade, but I try to be communicative on that front and let my trade partners know when something might slow me down.
