Item Sent: 1981 Topps, 1982 Fleer
Item Received: 1981 Topps, 1982 Fleer.  Both signed in blue Sharpie.  1982 Fleer is personalized.

Probably a very random Twins return for most, this is actually a very cool and nostalgic return for me.  In my letter to Mr. Verhoeven, I told him of how the very first Twins baseball card I ever owned was his 1982 Fleer card.  I remember buying two packs of 1982 Fleer cards at the Red Owl grocery store in St. Louis Park.  Out of the two packs, Verhoeven was the only Twin I pulled.  My original card was mutilated years ago, but it's very cool to get one signed.
