Minnesota Twins

Franchise Founded: 1894
Championships: 3
Team Collectibility Rating: 7.0


Overview

The Minnesota Twins are in the midst of a rebuilding phase that should be paying dividends in the very near future. The team's farm system is stocked with some of the top prospects in the game. This provides collectors plenty of opportunities to get in early on what could be a team loaded with the game's next generation of superstars.

Founded in Kansas City in 1894 as the Blues, the team moved to Washington, D.C. in 1901. The franchise is one of the founding members of the American League and played as the Nationals and the Senators while in the nation's capital.

In 1960, Minnesota received rights to host a MLB team and enticed the Senators to make the move to the Midwest. They changed their name to the Twins in honor of Minnesota's "Twin Cities" of Minneapolis and St. Paul.

The Twins have been home to some impressive players, but none more noteworthy than Harmon Killebrew. Part of the prestigious 500 home run club, his explosive power helped instantly create a strong fan base. Other players like Rod Carew and Kirby Puckett also became fan favorites.

Since their move to Minnesota, the Twins have won two World Series titles, in 1987 and 1991. While they have failed to win another championship, they have had bouts of success, winning six AL Central division titles since 2002.

Poised for an explosive comeback, a youth movement is taking shape in the "Twin Cities" as fans eagerly await the arrival of top prospects Byron Buxton and Miguel Sano.

Collectors have plenty of options when it comes to merchandise and collectibles for the Minnesota Twins.
