Upcoming Twins Fest 2015

                 I am very excited to attend the upcoming Twins Fest, from January 23 to 25. I am looking forward to try to get Nolasco's autograph. He was a no-show at a signing at last years Twins Fest. Too "busy" I guess? :I Also, I am going to try very hard to get Byron Buxton and Miguel Sano. I missed out on them last year and they would be great adds. They will hopefully be good for the Twins' future plans. I am hoping that Eddie Guardado will be at a booth since he recently agreed to join Paul Molitor's coaching staff. It would be great to see Joe Mauer, but unfortunately he is not a priority. I received his autograph two years ago. I hope to see more signings before January from Terry Ryan so that I can have a chance to get a new player's autograph. Maybe Torii Hunter will make a return? We'll see if Ryan can finally have a productive off-season and get a .500 record next season.

November Sports Cards and Memorabilia Show

                                                   On Sunday I went to the Bloomington Card Show. It is held the first Saturday and Sunday of every month and I try to go as much as I can. On Sunday I bought two Minnesota Twins plaques. Joe Mauer's card was on one of them and Kent Hrbek was on the other. I also bought three packs of 2014 Topps baseball cards. I was happy to add the cards to my 2014 collection. My happiest purchase was five Twins prospects cards. They were Adam Walker, Nick Gordon, Jose Berrios, Kennys Vargas, and Eddie Rosario. I am especially pleased with finding a Nick Gordon card because he was just drafted by the Twins this past summer. He is even a top prospect in MLB's top prospects list. Kennys Vargas got quite a bit of playing time last season but it was still a great find. Eddie Rosario just played in the Arizona Fall League Fall Stars game. Jose Berrios is expected to be a big league ace in a few year's time. Lastly, Adam Walker is a pretty big power threat in the farm and hopefully in the majors. I plan to get all of the cards signed next Twins Fest.
