Bob Skinner

In January 2019 I found a great deal on eBay for 2 sealed boxes (AA & AAA) of 1991 Line Drive Minor League cards. I started to open the AAA packs first. Shortly into opening those packs, I pulled a card of Bob Skinner. I had never had a card of him, and I knew that he was a great signer thru the mail, plus, his son Joel had just been recently named the Minnesota Twins AAA manager, so I knew I'd have a chance at meeting him that spring. So, I decided to go ahead and see if I could get the father first by mailing him a card and then hoped that his son travels to my area when the Twins played in Clearwater.
Sadly, I had injured myself just days before spring training games had begun and missed 3 weeks' worth of games, including my chance of seeing Joel.

Seven days later my card came back signed.

Bob signed a 1991 Line Drive AAA Pre-Rookie card #624.
