The Lost Collector Finds a Missing Blogger

AJ from The Lost Collector send over a #Supertrade package this week. I've been really overloaded with work and family obligations this summer, baseball cards have had to take a back seat. It was great to get this trade, lots of great stuff all in one place!
 Perkins is out for at least the rest of this year after having labrum surgery - He is hoping to be back in time for Spring Training 2017.
 While Perk was tearing up the minors, these guys were regulars on the early to mid 2000s Twins playoff teams.
 Love the Powder Blue Jones throwback, and I think this is my first Orlando Cabrera card as a Twin. The Twins were happy to get Cabrera on their side - against Minnesota, Cabrera has a lifetime .343 Batting Average.
 Here are the current Twins outfielders - all looking to make some noise in 2016. Kepler is in the middle of a power surge in July, with seven of his 10 career homers coming in just the last 3 weeks.
The Twins lone All-Star representative in 2016, Nunez is known for the batting helmet that is at least two sizes too big, which comes flying off his head as he rounds the bases.

Thanks for all the great cards, AJ!
