Catching Up Quickly Before Heading To TwinsFest

A few returns to catch up on over the last two days.

Dan McGinn signed a 1971 and 1972 Topps.

Monte Irvin signed a 1952 Topps. This was my third attempt. I never got a response to my first attempt. The second one resulted in a request for a check (even though my $10 cash wasn't returned).

And Don Mueller wrote a short note that he misplaced my card (a 1955 Red Man) and instead sent this signed photo.

I've spent the last two evenings trying to get prepared for TwinsFest. I expect tonight to be very crowded and chaotic. Mauer is signing in the first session (why do they do that?) and Thome is signing during the second session, which is the only time he's appearing all weekend. We aren't going to try for either.

Among the missing players: Casilla, Capps, Liriano, Pavano, Morneau and of course Killebrew. Molitor is only signing once (Saturday morning first thing). We are going to try for that one.

I'll update as I have time throughout the event.

Enjoy the Fest. Always wondered whether an event like that would be wonderful or frustrating.
