Journeyman lefty Randy Niemann appeared in 31 games for the World Champion New York Mets in 1986, but was not on the post-season roster. In 1987, he signed as a minor league free agent with the Minnesota Twins. He appeared in eight games for the Twins that June, picking up a win along the way. He obviously was not a part of the Twins' post-season roster in their World Champion season, either, but the 1987 Donruss Opening Day logo card you see here represents my quest to build an "ultimate" 1987 Donruss Twins team set.
