Calling All Twins fans..

Ok Twinkies , How that nickname stuck , I have no idea , here's the deal, I live in Rochester , NY ,yeah I know but your AAA team is here so gimme a break ( Man that has got to be a grammatical error , look at all those commas') And I happen to go to some games so here's  a chance to put your name in the comment box and get some free swag. ( finally a period )

I cant say what will or whom will sign it but rest assured , it will be a Twins minor leaguer. 1st pitch is 9 days away but this will give me time to get some ideas as to who and what.

If  you have something you would like signed , I can try that too. Just leave a comment as to your interest and if you have questions , feel free to email me

Otherwise , just leave a comment  and I will try to get something baseball related signed sealed and delivered to your door.

It's a long season and I go to the games when I can so no promises but i will do my best..

The list is growing for their appearances this year , have a look. ( 2 openings left )

Should be some good baseball this year , or atleast some good signings.. Too bad Ryne Sandberg left for the big leagues but i did get can read about that here

Thanks for reading ..

PWE Bombs and info on a gift for followers

First off , Thanks to Jeff who writes 2x3 Heroes and there is a mystery Bomber out there who also sent some Yankee love to my son Kyle.He absolutely loves coming home and checking the mailbox. I have to think that will change when he gets his own address and he gets alot more mail but with numbers and some guy who goes by the name of BILL. But for now we Thank you.

I hit up the card show today. 1 of the dealers told me Kyle is becoming known as he has learned to go through the room and look and haggle the 2nd time around.Todays example

This card laying in the case for $5.00

Kyle; " Would you take $3 for this ?"
Dealer; " Nope..."
Kyle; " Hmmmmmm...."
Dealer; " $2 is the highest I'll go.."


That kid can stretch a $5 like no other these days. I got some great deals too..None for me but some are being sent to " Credit " a sender and the others are for an Underdog Collector who was very kind to Kyle.

I am thinking of an idea to continue this " Pay it forward " or PWE Bomb thing. I'm thinking that with our local show being monthly , i am going to start by doing a randomizing of my followers and the person who gets the top billing will get a little something from Kyle and myself. When you " win " you have to sit out the next drawing. No one will " win " Back to Back.. The winnings would come from the search of your blog from your want list.If I dont see anything , I will do some investigative work and get a sense of who or what you follow or would like.

Thanks again for reading and Spring is around the corner..I'm just glad with the clocks moving forward , it was 1 hour less working on the kitchen..

Apologies and Thanks..

It's no secret that I am not the 1 a day , 1 a week type blogger.Even more so that I am locked in on this Kitchen Re-Do.  I am greatful that my father in law gave us a much needed day off today. We have been going strong since Feb 1st..This is where we are at this point.

Kyle was given 1st crack..Or if you believe Jeff over at 2x3 Heroes  
I am a big proponent of child labor..

And this is where we are today.

In the meantime, we ( Kyle and I ) worked out a trade with 2x3 and got some great cards. My apologies for not posting them , but I was able to get these up which were sent out of the kindness of his heart to Kyle.

A CC and Sweet Jeter Shiny.. I seriously have some competition here.. I immediately ran out and bought the kid a Mantle rookie to reclaim my spot at the top.( OK , you got me ) I meant a 2013 Blaster of Topps. which had some cards that were shipped out to a few of you.
 In ending , I appreciate the patience I am getting from Zach who has The Underdog Blog. His generosity is much appreciated and hopefully my additions to his package will be worth the wait..
