Blake Meyer was a Minnesota Twins fan who wanted a place to display his baseball card collection on-line. Little did he know he was creating a monster.
He’s in the military, stationed in the UK, but the internet helps Twins nut Blake Meyer keep tabs on his favorite team. The ‘net has also helped him create perhaps the most extensive fan/collector site around. Twinscards.com now boasts not only cards from every set imaginable, but over 10,000 Twins autographs as well as 3,000 photographs and postcards.
It’s gotten so big, he’s ready to start a Twins memorabilia section too. "Want to know who played second base for the Twins in 1979? You could look it up in a hundred different places, but nobody will display it like twinscards.com," Meyer tells the Post-Bulletin of Rochester, MN. "Each year is graphically represented at each position with a baseball card."
