Being from Minnesota I can appreciate your set of Twins bats. I had the opportunity to meet many of those guys back in the 80s and 90s sitting with them at signings and shows. Most of them were really decent guys.

I am going to venture a guess that Clyde has not called you because he has many of those bats from his own collection that are currently on display or able to be displayed with the Twins. Clyde had a ridiculously large collection of Twins memorabilia before selling it to them and taking the job with them. Hes a really good guy so Im sure hell get back to you at some point. Maybe hes just off for the winter. Take care, Jason

Default nice!

That's a really impressive set you got there! I'm surprised that Ted U proves to be the tough one. Me, I would find it hard to let go of that collection if it was mine, so I admire your willingness to share it. When Taylor finally finishes building the brick and mortar Minneapolis Millers museum, maybe you could display them there!!

Default 1977-79 Oakland A's

Saw a lot of them in Spring Training those years, mainly playing the Padres in Yuma. Interesting time period for the A's as well. Their great teams of the early-mid 70's having been gutted by free agency and not yet the competitive "Billy Ball" under manager Billy Martin where they crawled back to respectability.
Some of my favorites- Mike Edwards, Mitchell Page, Wayne Gross, Tony Armas,
Jim Essian, Taylor Duncan.
Also collecting 1969 Padres bats which has morphed into a 1969-1976 collection.

Had the exact same thought reading the thread (which is amazing for sure).

I have a half dozen random Orioles bats that I picked up years ago but never considered chasing a specific year's team or lineup. It would be a fun project but given how full my hobby room is now I'd be hard pressed to find a way to display them. I'm afraid they'd end up like the ones I have...in a closet.

Bob,

I only have one GU bat besides a Brookie and that is a Ken Singleton. I picked it up years and years ago. If I was to ever collect Os bats Id likely just go after the starting position players and really not be particular of a specific year (Im sure a F. Robby would be costly). Of course with two player bats Id still have a long way to go.

By the way Id love to see that packed hobby room!
