Basil Meyer was an undrafted free agent who spent four years in the Twins system from 1987-1990.  The back of this card had him residing in Nevis, Minnesota (a small town on the outskirts of the Chippewa National Forest), so naturally I mentioned that I'm especially fond of collecting signatures of Minnesota natives.  He added a note to my letter, mentioning that he was actually born in Kansas, therefore wasn't sure if he met my criteria, but was happy to sign anyway.  (He does meet it, of course.)
