A collection of autographed custom trading cards from the players, coaches, and notable figures in Minnesota sports history.

A longtime coach and manager in the Twins/Senators organization, Cal Ermer was called on to take over the Twins two months into the 1967 season. He guided them to within one game of the AL Pennant that year, but after a disastrous 1968 season (freak injury to Harmon Killebrew, inexplicably benching Rod Carew for Frank Quilici for games at a time) he was replaced by Billy Martin in 1969. He continued to work as a Twins minor league coach and scout for the next three decades.
Mr. Ermer passed away in 2009. I purchased this cut signature on eBay for a cool 99 cents and cut the card to fit.
