An Unexpected Find

Today my son and I went out looking to buy him some new catcher's gear for the upcoming season.  We decided to check out Baseball 365 in Bloomington.  Since it's pretty close to the Valley West Mall, we went to the card show first.

The only thing I found at the card show was a 2014 Team Set put out by Topps in the 1955 style but in large (5x7) format.  It's not a big set, but includes Mauer, Hughes, Dozier, Plouffe and Willingham.  I may get a couple signed at TwinsFest.

Then we headed over to Baseball 365 and found some nice gear for my son.  The shop also has cards and other memorabilia, and I ended up buying a signed Johan Santana Cy Young bobblehead.  It wasn't super cheap, but not outrageous either.  I bought it not knowing whether I'd ever have a chance to see him in person again, so I'm happy to have it.
