Default 2013 TwinsFest Haul! Pictures inside!

This year was a blast again. This is only my second year attending, but I got pretty much every auto I really wanted down there except for Sano. I was disappointed that Hrbek was a late scratch due to the flu, really wanted him on an 8x10 this year. Sano was the worst line of the weekend, otherwise I got through every other line very quickly compared to last year. Here are the pictures of what I came away with!


Mike Pelfrey 8x10 Auto


Kyle Gibson 8x10 Auto w/ Bible inscription. Also a piece of the old Dome roof in the sleeve.


Aaron Hicks 8x10 Auto


Helmet with Ron Gardenhire on brim, Willingham above the TC, Plouffe on the side.
Going to continue to add signatures of worthy players to the helmet yearly.


Dan Gladden mini bat (4th or 5th time I've gotten Gladdens auto)

Had a good 5 minute conversation with him. Told him how many times I've gotten him and we had a good conversation about collecting!



Justin Morneau Auto 8x10 w/ picture of him signing



Jim Perry Auto ball w/ 1970 Cy Young inscription and a picture with Jim Perry

Perry insisted that EVERYONE got a picture with him! Very friendly and just a fantastic guy in general!


Bert Blyleven Auto HOF ball

3rd time meeting Bert and all have been very pleasant. Talked with him for a tad, he has always been classy when I've met him but some people have had bad experiences with him.

and now probably my 4 favorite pieces from the weekend, in no particular order!


Rollie Fingers Auto 8x10 w/ '81 Cy Young inscription

Had a nice conversation with Fingers and checked out his WS ring for awhile. Another great guy!


Maury Wills Auto 8x10 w/ 104 Steals in '62 and MVP NL '62 inscriptions

Wills was a class act and a funny dude. Gave me a hard time for being a Twins fan! Awesome guy!


Paul Molitor Auto mini helmet (he used my gold sharpie!)


Rod Carew Auto mini helmet


Overall it was a successful weekend, being a sophomore in college, it can be tough on the wallet, but its worth it! The 2 autos I wanted most were Carew and Molitor. Having Fingers, Perry, and Wills being there were just nice surprises. And thank you to the guy that gave me his Morneau wristband because he was leaving! I wasn't even planning on trying to get Morneau or Mauer this year until he gave me that band! Overall, another great trip to TwinsFest. My family and I are making it a yearly trip now! Thanks for the look!

Thanks! It is always a blast! I love that the Twins always bring in surprise guests like Rollie, Perry, and Wills. They also had Fergie Jenkins and Mudcat Grant. I got Grant last year and I've heard Fergie is a stubborn man. If he is there again next year, I'll get him! He has been there the last 2 years I believe

I believe that signing table is actually for his charity(fergies) so he should be there. Same Guys were at Cubs con. Fergie is a bit.....Dbagish, but he has one of the nicest sigs in the game. Love the Plouffe auto! Him and Fielder are my favorite non Cub players.

So Bert didn't force a personalization!?

If he is not doing that anymore I may just have to get his auto next year.

I have 3 Bert's, no personalization on any. He only requests on some things, but baseballs obviously aren't one. I didn't see any personalized this year or last.

Thanks man! That's a nice Burnett jersey. I've never been his biggest fan but you can never go wrong with a Twins Gamer

Awesome. I so wish I could go.

But I am stuck with Diamondbacks fan fest which is total crap. They try as hard as they can to make it NOT fun for the fans. Too many dumb restrictions

Oh its a blast! They do a great job of making it fun and enjoyable for the fans. I've only went 2 years now, but we are making sure to make it a yearly trip every year. We travel over 300 miles round trip, but it is always worth it! And usually on the Sunday we head to the MOA, always a great weekend!
