Last of My Younger Son's Items From TwinsFest

On Sunday (1/31), David skipped the first two autograph sessions. He hit in the home run derby, played a little whiffleball, got his face painted, and other kid's stuff. We all got in line pretty early for the Hardy/Kubel/Young signing, which also took up a good part of his morning. We got through that line though, which was lucky. By the time the session started, the line wrapped around the big square around autograph stations #1 and #2. So, people who were at the end of the line, could see the people signing, but then had to wrap all the way around the floor and back the other side. My wife said that not everyone in that line made it, which is rare for the stations on the floor.

David had Delmon Young sign a Twins program that he's had for a while. It looks really nice.

He had Kubel sign a picture.

And J.J, Hardy signed a 2009 Topps Heritage.

All four of us went through this line with a variety of items including a bat, some bobbleheads, cards and pictures. Because of this, our hands were full and I didn't get any pictures of the players signing like I usually do.

That left just one line, where Swarzak was supposed to be, but didn't attend. So that left Jeff Manship and Pat Neshek. David had them both sign a bat that he painted at one of the booths on the Metrodome floor.

That wraps up David's items from TwinsFest. You'll notice a lack of Hall of Famer/retired player autographs. David is really only interested in the current guys that he sees play. My older son, John, is really interested in the older players. I'll start showing his items next.
