The Magnificent Minnesota Seven RC Needs List



There were only seven players that were on the Minnesota Twins for both their 1987 and 1991 World Series championships. Those players of course include two all-time Twins stars Kirby Puckett and Kent Hrbek and five players who became famous for their roles on the championship teams, Dan Gladden, Randy Bush, Greg Gagne, Al Newman, and Gene Larkin.

I came upon this little tidbit researching my Dan Gladden post from a few months ago and so I'm going to collect the rookie cards [and early cards that might not technically be RCs] for each of these players. I have some of these already but I'm going to get duplicate copies for this little project.

There's another oddball 1985 set that the Twins co-produced with 7-11 and the "Fire Marshal's Association of Minnesota." (that's how it's spelled on the cards) Puckett and Hrbek have cards in the 12 card set, but no Gagne, unfortunately. Roy Smalley was the Shortstop instead.
