Default First Game Used Jersey pickup- Nate Roberts Beloit Twins-themed (scan heavy)

Got this from JT for a solid price. Saw Roberts play at one game earlier, he hit a triple and got him to sign a photo and a baseball. Hopefully he makes it to the majors, hitting .300 on his career so has a shot.

Nice! The Rochester Red Wings have charity game used jersey auctions several times throughout the year. I have obtained four the last few years, a Liam Hendriks, Ray Chang, Esmerling Vasquez and an Anthony Slama. The Hendriks is a very nice blue color with red lettering/numbering. The Vasquex is a Minnesota Twins replica jersey. Each comes autographed too!

The Twins handle their minor league clubs very well, with whatever input they have with them I suppose.

How much did the Hendriks and Slama run you? Hendriks seems to have a big fan base, at least on his 1/1s, and Slama should be set-up/closing or traded by the Twins this year. Not sure why we let him dominate Rochtester without calling him up.

I want to say the Hendriks was just under $100. Slama I got a few years ago when he was running things and named to the futures game. I believe I got it for $50 or so. LMK if you wanna se pictures, I can get some up!

Is that a photo match? Those dirt stains on your jersey looks a lot like the ones in the pictures.

If so that is even more bada$$

Nice pickup! Roberts also has the distinction of having the best mustache in the Twins organization.

Yep. JT is the team photographer, so he had the pictures from the game, and it was the only time they wore the jerseys. Roberts was 1-2 with a 2B, RBI, and throwing error if I remember correctly from the boxscore.

The Slama sounds pretty cool, would be interested in seeing that.

I was going to say the worst one, but whatever floats your boat
