Club Auction TCSCC is happy to announce that periodic auctions have returned to our shows at Valley West. The store space we used to use has once again opened up and the mall is allowing us to use that space until a new tenant is found. The next auction will be at the upcoming show on Saturday, August 13th, beginning at 2:30pm. One change to the auctions is that all items must be pre-registered. No walk-in items will be accepted day of auction. To pre-register items for sale and for more information contact Jack Fei at jackfei@aol.com or 651-698-1691 in the evening.

Dealers Added to Club Shows With the reopening of one of the store spaces at Valley West, TCSCC has room to add a few more dealer tables. Be sure to look for the open door and sign reading "more dealers" and go in to see what bargains they have for you.

Upcoming Autograph Authentications Get your autographed items certified and authenticated by one of the nations leading authenticators, James Spence Authentication. They will be doing on-site authentications during an upcoming TCSCC show at Valley West (they say sometime in the fall, watch here for details). JSA will be there during show hours. It is recommended that you come early, as they need time to do their thing. Don't arrive ten minutes before the show closes and expect to get your item done. Costs vary depending on the item. To get an idea of cost and to learn more about JSA visit their website SpenceLOA.com

TCSCC Charity Program Each month, two new organizations will be recognized and receive donations on behalf of the club. Any current club member can submit an organization for consideration. The only stipulation is that it NOT be a national organization (Cancer Society, ALS, etc.). The purpose is to help Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Iowa organizations in need of some financial assistance for their programs. If you would like to submit an organization, or need more information, please contact Dave Bonde (dandcbonde@charter.net) or 1217 Central Ave., Red Wing, MN. 55066. Information needed is: the name of the organization, purpose for consideration, a contact person with phone number or email address.

 

Online Catalog: The online catalog contains autographed items for sale from the many guests who have appeared at TCSCC shows.  Check it out and support the club.

Minnesota Twins Card and Minnesota Vikings Card Web Sites: Informational websites for Minnesota Twins and Vikings collectors. The websites offer collectors a chance to view, or even print out, lists of Twins and Vikings cards issued by company, year, individual, and even position.  These are great sites for one who often wonders; Do I have all the cards that were issued from this set?
