You guys are making it hard to keep track, what with the lack of numbering and the duplicates, but...a player who signed a ball for my son in spring training years ago, and told him "if you sign one, you gotta sign em all, or else you're a bad guy"....

I think they printed 1000's of this card

 

80-363Fr.jpg

Can't imagine he's been mentioned yet

I had one. Age 52 and as recently as last summer my box of card were still in mom's attic. She never throws anything away (except my old 80's heavy metal albums - good call on her part.)

Did anyone mention Alex Meyer yet? I also recall another hotshot prospect, Steve Gasser, back in the late 1980s, but don't think he ever made the majors.

Chuck Nieson - pitched all of 2 innings in the big leagues - for the Twins in 1964. I'd include a picture of his baseball card, but he does not have one!

That Twins 2nd baseman - #29 - he doesn't run, he "ca-rew-zes" - Earl Weaver

Little Falls, MN native Mike Poepping.Played 14 games for the Twins in 1975 and hit a robust .135.

 

Hard to understand why he was not back with the club in 1976. ;)
