I grew up a Twins fan, and enjoy all things associated with their earlier years. I also enjoy things related to their precursors, the old Washington Senators. By the early 1970s my attention increasingly focused on football and the Vikings. It wasn't easy seeing them get to the Super Bowl so often but never win it.
My original holy trinity as a child were Harmon Killebrew, Rod Carew, and Tony Oliva. (No worries - they no longer are that to me!). While I have most of their common cards, I am needing a lot of the oddball issues and always enjoy the inserts from the newer sets. For the Senators, I am always on the look out for anything featuring WaJo or Goose Goslin.
I have decided to put together a couple special Topps projects - pursuit of the 1965 Twin's starting line-up, and a nine-pocket Killebrew collection for his cards form 1960-1969. Right now I pretty much need them all but will be posting something in the future.
