I guess I’ll kick things off on here with a couple cards I got in the mail today.

The first one I got was this 2002 Bowman – Signs of the Future autographed card. When I came across this one on ebay, I didn’t even know it existed. I knew Morneau had an autographed card in the 2001 Bowman product but I didn’t know he was in the 2002 as well. I love the Bowman autograph cards because they are all hard signed on the card itself and not on a sticker. I have one friend who is a firm believer that years from now all those sticker autographs are going to disappear and fade away completely. He may be right.

The other card I received today was this autographed relic card from the 2007 Topps Triple Threads product. All in all, this is pretty bland as far as autographed relics go. For some reason, it seemed like Morneau got the shaft in the 2007 edition since most of his cards featured 3 bat pieces and none (at least none that I’ve seen) seem to have anything cool like a patch. I originally gave some thought to trying to collect one card from each parallel color from the series but after giving it some thought, I dropped that idea. If the relics were a little cooler, I would consider it, but as they are, I can skip them. This one was the Emerald parallel and is numbered #42/50.

Another solid game tonight from Morneau (3-5, 2 RBI) but the Twins lost and didn’t get a chance to gain a game on the White Sox (who also lost). Honestly, I’m a little torn on whether or not I want the Twins to win the division. On one hand, it would be cool to see them win. On the other hand, if they win, I could see Morneau getting quite a few MVP votes. A second MVP in 3 years would drive up the price on his items and make my life tough.
