A place where Colorado Rockies baseball card collectors (all 3 of us) can waste some time reading about our favorite sport. The Rockies and their cards will be the primary focus, but I like to go off on tangents as well so anything and everything baseball related may be covered here.

2013 Quarry Unlimited - #5 Minnesota Twins Part 1

Coming in at slot #5 is the first change from 2012, the Minnesota Twins.  They moved up 2 slots not because they did anything particularly noteworthy, but because the team that was in this spot became a bit more villainous in 2013.  There is nothing wrong with occasionally benefiting from another team's poor performance.  Sure you want to hit the game winning home run, but if you score on a misplayed fly ball it still counts as a win.  As you ponder my sage advice, let's take a look at some Twins team trivia and the first half of the team set.


# of players to play in a Twins game (1993-2013) - 343

# of those players to have a Twins card (as of today) - 254

% of Twins players to appear on a Twins card - 74.1%

Big names left out - Bret Boone, R.A. Dickey, Jose Offerman

# of new Twins in 2013 - 19

Total # of Twins in 2013 - 44

position on last year's list --   #7    =  UP 2 spots

Let's take a look at the first half of the 2013 Minnesota Twins with the team card leading the way.

I'll be back with Part 2 tomorrow.

Thanx for reading.
