. . . buy it online. So I dragged myself to two Walmarts this week, hoping to score some Bowman Platinum. Both places were sold out, but I had a back up plan already in place. My good friend, the Internet! I have been buying small lots of Twins from a seller on Facebook, and he let me know that he had a bunch of Bowman looking for a home.
Here's what the back of base cards look like, for those curious, nothing groundbreaking here. Similar to Finest.
Twins! Everybody wants the hits, but the base cards are all I was really looking to get.
Fernando! He's going to be called up soon to get his shot, I can feel it!
In addition to Bowman Platinum, there were some Twins-centric goods available. Max Kepler isn't a superstar, but he's speedy. He's a plus defender and has a sweet line drive swing that is still developing.
Miguel has continued to hit the ball hard after finishing second in the Home Run Derby, smashing two homers against the Yankees in the three game series at Target Field.
A Starter turned reliever, Tyler Duffey has been solid, eating up lots of needed innings for the Twins when their regular starters falter (which has been often this season).
And one more Romero for the road! This last one was found on eBay, it's serial numbered to 99 on the back.
