Getting Choked up Right now a Little
Not to worry, nothing to be sad about, but Bud Harrelson is a little choked up right now. This was part of a surprise package from Jim AKA gcrl from cards as i see them.
It was a formidable stack of cards, including 2018 issues like the Felix Jorge refractor rookie you see above.
A big selection of Jacque Jones cards! Jones was an essential part of the early 2000 Twins teams, often serving as Minnesota's Right Fielder and Leadoff man.
Torii Hunter was the heir apparent to Kirby Puckett in Center Field, and he filled in admirably. He played several seasons away from MN once he became a free agent, but he returned in 2015 for one last season with the team that drafted him, playing for his old teammate Paul Molitor.
Some vintage and nearly vintage Twins made the trip as well.
Maximum Jacksons represented in this mailer.
There was even a pair of hits! Hometown Hero and longtime closer Glen Perkins,
and Rule V find Ryan Pressly, who has been featured on precious few cards over the years.
Thanks very much Jim, this is excellent karma for the Dodgers! Good luck in the Series.
