Another team autograph collector!

Do you have a needs list?
Not to hijack Zach’s thread , but he did it to me so I don’t feel too bad ;) I kid but...

Are you still in charge of FCBs twitter? Was that you? I wonder what would happen if you tweeted out the team collector threads to the teams and some of the players? I’m not on social media at all, but wonder if they’d get a reaction or anything

I did it for about a year, but keeping up with it was too much for me. [MENTION=1720]cgilmo[/MENTION] is back in control of it.

Are you a member of the Twins card site? http://www.twinscards.com

Neat site. I would like to see a more involved Dodger site, but then again, I am not involved myself either, so I can't say much to that regard.

61. Steve Lombardozzi- Starting second baseman for the 1987 World Series team. His bat left much to be desired. His son is a professional baseball player as well.


62. Pat Mahomes- Had a career ERA over 5, but yet he was able to play in 11 MLB seasons. I saw him pitch for the Sioux Falls Canaries of the American Association back in 2007 or 2008. I was 14-15 years old, saw his name on the roster and remembered seeing him on a Twins card in my collection so I thought that was pretty cool back then. His kid is also a decent football player...


63. Same Mele- Took over as manager in the middle of the 1961 season. Was fired after 50 games in 1967. Led the club to the 1965 World Series, where they lost to the Dodgers in 7 games.


64. Alex Meyer- Had high hopes for this guy. The Twins traded Denard Span straight up for Alex Meyer. For those that don't know, I was a huge collector of Span before this trade, so I was really hoping Meyer would pan out. Sad to say, he hasn't and was traded to the Angels.


65. Doug Mientkiewicz- Gold Glove winning first baseman. Had a controversial moment when he kept the ball from the final out of the 2004 World Series with the Red Sox


66. Tom Kelly- "T.K." Managed the Twins to their only two World Series titles in 1987 and 1991. Managed from '86-'01. His number 10 is retired by the team and he is in the Twins Hall of Fame.


67. Travis Miller- Twins first round pick in 1994. Appeared in 203 games over 7 seasons with the Twins while pitching to a career ERA of 5.05


68. Eric Milton- Pitched a no-hitter for the Twins in 1999. Was an all-star in 2001


69. Bobby Mitchell- Played in the 1967 Little League World Series. Appeared in 202 games in his short, 4 year career split between the Twins and Dodgers


70. Darin Mastroianni- Appeared in 121 games over 4 seasons with the Twins. Currently has his own custom woodworking shop in Minnesota.

71. Jack Morris- Elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, class of 2018. Was a mediocre pitcher during the regular season, decent-great playoff pitcher. Pitched one of the greatest games in game 7 of the 1991 World Series, going 10 innings of shutout ball to propel the Twins to their 2nd World Series.


72. Paul Molitor- "The Ignitor" Member of the Hall of Fame. Played for the University of Minnesota, and went to the same school that Joe Mauer later attended. Member of the 3,000 hit club. Currently the manager of the Minnesota Twins. 2017 AL Manager of the Year.


73. Al Newman- Member of the 1987 and 1991 World Series championship teams. Became a coach with the Twins after his playing career ended.


74. Joe Nossek- Appeared in 98 games for the Twins over three season. Spent 28 years as a coach with various organizations and in various positions.


75. Ryan O'Rourke- Appeared in 54 games as a reliever in 2015-2016. Did not play in 2017 due to injuries


76. Mike Pagliarulo- "Pags" Starting third baseman for the 1991 World Series Championship team. Currently the hitting coach of the Miami Marlins


77. Trevor May- Missed all of 2017 while recovering from TJ surgery. Will be looked at as a starter during ST, but may be bumped to the bullpen.


78. Chris Parmelee- Twins 1st round pick in 2006. Bounced between AAA and the Twins for a few years. (How's this for Twins [MENTION=1995]dano7[/MENTION])


79. Ron Perranoski- Was a member of the Dodgers 1965 World Series team that beat the Twins. Was traded to the Twins for Mudcat Grant and Zoilo Versalles


80. Trevor Plouffe- Was a solid third baseman for the Twins for a few years. First round pick back in 2004, made his debut in 2010.

I lived down the block from Tom Kelly as a kid in South Amboy, NJ. During the offseason, he'd come back home and was pretty cool, and sociable. I've had multiple autos of him, from growing up there

Great stuff! Crazy I have no recollection of Pagliarulo on that Twins team. Granted those were pre Internet days (hell my street didn’t even have cable yet) so I guess if he wasn’t frequently on TWIB I wouldn’t have seen him lol

81. Tony Oliva- "Tony O." 1964 ROY, 8x All-star, 1966 GG winner, and 3x AL batting champ. His number 6 is retired by the Twins and he is in the Twins Hall of Fame. He would likely be a member of the Hall of Fame if his last few seasons were not riddled with injuries.


82. Carl Pavano- Was the Opening Day starter for the Twins in 2011 and 2012.


83. Jeff Reboulet- Exceeded 100 games played in just 2 seasons over a 12 year career.


84. Pat Neshek- Made his first ASG in 2014 while with the Cardinals. Grew up in Brooklyn Park, MN. Has one of the most unorthodox deliveries in baseball.


85. Tsuyoshi Nishioka- The Twins first failed Asian import. Broke his leg just a week into his career. Appeared in 71 games for the Twins over two years.


86. Terry Steinbach- Another Minnesota native. Catcher for two no-hitters. 3x All-star.


87. Danny Santana- Had a promising rookie campaign in 2014. Never could match the production from that year. Turned into a super utility player for Gardenhire.


88. Dick Stigman- Minnesota native. His best season came in 1963 when he finished with a 3.25 ERA and 193 strikeouts.


89. Shannon Stewart- Member of the Soul Patrol outfield with Torii Hunter and Jacque Jones. Was limited after his trade to the Twins due to complications with plantar fasciitis


90. Josh Willingham- "Hammer" Had his career's best statistical season his first year in Minnesota in 2012 when he hit 35 HRs and hat 110 RBI's, propelling him to win his only career Silver Slugger award

91. Brad Radke- Pitched 12 seasons for the Twins. Is a member of the Twins Hall of Fame. Won 12 consecutive starts in 1998


92. Pete Redfern- Was the Twins Opening Day pitcher in 1982, in what would be the last of his 7 year career, all with the Twins. Almost died in a diving accident in October 1983, he survived, but was left paralyzed.


93. Luis Rivas- Played with the Twins from 200-2005. Looked like a promising second baseman, but never quite panned out.


94. Taylor Rogers- Emerged as a solid lefty bullpen option for the Twins in the 2016 season. Has a twin brother pitching in the Giants organization


95. Rich Rollins- Received the most votes for the AL All-star team in 1962. Was one of 5 Twins players to hit a home run in the 7th inning on June 9, 1966 against the A's.


96. Phil Roof- Was generally used as a back up catcher. Was considered a great defensive player.


97. Aaron Thompson- Appeared in 48 games out of the bullpen for the Twins between 2014-2015.


98. Michael Tonkin- Was given way too many chances to prove himself from 2013-2017. Signed over in Japan after his Twins release in November 2017. (Don't laugh at the cheap homemade card, you'd think a guy with 5 years experience would have an actual card)


99. Mike Trombley- Had an 11 year career, with 9 of those being spent in Minnesota


100. Joe Mauer- Figured I had to use a decent player on this nice, round number. 2009 AL MVP, 3x AL batting champ, 3x GG, 6x AS, and 5x SS. Drafted first overall in 2001 out of the same high school that Paul Molitor attended. Fun fact- I was in attendance for his first career walk-off home run. Still need to get a ticket stub from that game (dang digital tickets)
