Item Received: 2010 Topps Heritage, 2011 Topps Heritage.  Both signed in black Sharpie.

The Twins' offseason signing of Ryan Doumit mirrors their typical bargain basement free agent gambles, but I'm a fan of this one.  Doumit can hit.  Flat out hit.  He can't field much, but he's willing to play anywhere.  Health has been a recurring problem over his career.  That's undeniable.  But he's a switch-hitter with a lot of pop and is a huge offensive upgrade over the Twins usual utility players and backup catchers.
