My Older Son's TwinsFest Autographs

I'm making record time getting all of my sons' autographs cataloged and posted.  Partly because we just wt two days instead of three, partly because the one hour signing sessions didn't allow us to hit as many different sessions, but mostly because they got a lot of autographs on their seatbacks instead of individual items.

John's seat back will look very similar to David's, but they got a couple of the autographs on different days.

On Friday, John got Terry Steinbach, Tim Laudner, Kent Hrbek, Ron Gardenhire, Dan Gladden, Jack Morris, Jason Kubel, Glen Perkins and Bert Blyleven on his seatback.

On Saturday, he got Joe Mauer, Tony Oliva, Scott Erickson, Roy Smalley and Rod Carew.

In addition to the seat back, he got several players on cards, including Tim Laudner, Jared Burton, Kevin Correia, Jason Bartlett, Darin Mastroianni, Samuel Deduno, Chris Colabello, Tony Oliva and Aaron Hicks.



Last year he worked on the 2012 Topps Heritage team set at TwinsFest.  We didn't have the Brian Dozier card and couldn't find one at the card show there.  We did find one before we went this year, so he was able to get it signed.

 This was our first year meeting Kurt Suzuki.  John is a catcher also, and like to get cards signed showing catchers in their gear, as opposed to batting.  He had Suzuki sign his 2010 Allen & Ginter.

John had Kyle Gibson sign a picture this year.

 John also used a picture of Target Field for those players we didn't have anything for them to sign.  These players included Nate Hansen, Alex Presley, Sean Gilmartin, Pedro Florimon, Tim Laudner, Ryan Pressly, Trevor May, Michael Tonkin and Max Kepler.

 That wraps up my kids' autographs.  Tomorrow I'll start on mine.
