SGA Bobblehead Collection Complete!

A couple posts ago I listed all the stadium giveaway bobbleheads I still needed for my collection.  Steve, a reader of my blog here in the Twin Cities, emailed and let me know he had all of them and was willing to sell them.

We quickly agreed on a price and met today at the Twin Cities Sports Collectors Club show in Bloomington.  He was unable to find his extra Guzman bobblehead, but I found one at the show.

Steve sold me six, including Kaat, Mauer, Morneau, Gladden, Satana and Willigham.


I'm running out of room to put all these bobbleheads, but I put the new ones on top of one of my display cases.

 And I gave Willingham his own shelf (replacing Denard Span).

Hopefully I can get a bunch of these signed at TwinsFest next year.  I'd sure like to see Morneau there again.  I'm pretty sure Gladden will be there.  Kaat would be a long shot and I doubt we'll ever see Guzman there.  Maybe some day Santana will come back.

I also picked up about 40 cards to send out.  Mostly from 1956, but a bunch from 1960 as well that I found in a $1 pile.

Morneau is coming back?

Well, he'll be a free agent when the season is over. I'm just hoping the Twins will sign him again.

Wishful thinking probably...
