Not All Who Wander Are Lost . . .

Like Wander Javier, for instance - that's just the dude's name. Also, Julie from A Cracked Bat - she had a little wander away from the blogs for a bit, but she's back and we're all very happy to see her posting again!
Julie sent over this nice mailer last week, and it had plenty of shiny new Twins for me.
Minis!
These are from 2006 - I may have purchased a couple packs of cards total that year, and none of these guys were in there.
Do not adjust your set - Fleer issued B&W and Sepia toned parallels in their Tradition set - they have an old school texture to them as well - printed on honest to goodness cardboard (probably).
Bert!! The scan is missing out on the trippy refractor-y colors on this card, it's fantastic in person.
This was probably my favorite card in the package - it's a vivid shade of blue and hopefully a future MVP on the front!

Thanks so much, Julie! This was great!

  3. I are you sure that's really Bert Blyleven on that Topps Tribute card? I don't think I've even seen him without a beard.

    1. He was clean shaven in the early days in MN, I think he started growing it out in Pittsburgh...

  4. It is so great to see Julie back.

    I wish Blyleven left the Pirates on better terms...

    1. Bert just wanted to pitch, and in the National League in that era, he was getting pulled in the 6th or 7th and racking up no decisions. He was rude about the whole thing, and nearly retired over it...
