August Group Break: Tigers & Twins

The final two teams to show off that aren't mine are separated by 10.5 games in the AL Central in the good way.

Team: Tigers
Buyer: Grand Cards
Cards of Interest: The Tigers go on to prove that when you have the best uniforms in baseball, you can make any color refractor look good.
2010 Bowman Chrome #BCP191 Wilkin Ramirez Green X-fractor
With the alternate color and the X-fractory-ness, I can't believe this card is not serial numbered.

2010 Topps Chrome # 177 Austin Jackson Purple Refractor (236/599)

1997 Upper Deck Collector's Choice #468 Bubba Trammell
I know what the Tigers were thinking: "Hey, his name's Trammell, the last one we had turned out to be a pretty good fit, so there's no way this won't work!"

1994 Ted Williams Card Company #M30 Al Kaline Memories
It took me a long time to figure out what this card is, part of an insert set called Memories. The surface of this card has a really interesting texture and look. Nice find.

Team: Twins
Buyer: Jason
Cards of Interest: There were actually a few more nice cards in this lot, but since there aren't any current Twins I don't despise (aside from Jim Thome; it's a shame he didn't hit his milestone with a more deserving team), all you get is this sweet vintage card.
1964 Topps #116 Jay Ward & Tony Oliva
