Minnesota Twins 1965 World Series Matchbook Magnet (MM88)
The original idea for the name of this team, when it moved from Washington, DC to Minnesota, was unity. The two men in the logo have different jerseys on, one stands for Minneapolis Millers, the other Saint Paul’s Saints. The same year they moved to Minnesota the Twins won 91 games, their best season in more than 25 years. Pretty soon they had Rod Carew, one of the best hitters of all time, playing for them, and the number 1 second baseman in the Twins’ history.
I know plenty of people from Minnesota and they are all of a kind – very plainspoken, excellent sense of humor, and keen appreciators of beer. So, that fact, in combination with my passion for baseball made it impossible not to go ahead and rescue this old cover. Love these two slouchy players shaking hands over the Minnesota River!
The image you see is exactly what we used to produce the magnet. (We include 1 free GypsyFaith sticker per order.)
All GypsyFaith magnets are double the strength of a normal refrigerator magnet; this magnet will hold several pieces of paper to a surface without sliding. The surface is textured, so it does not scratch. We developed it over a period of several years with our production partner in China. It took us a long, long time to get to this PVC product. Our intention, as we developed this product, was to make it as durable as our handmade magnet products were when we first began selling them more than 14 years ago.
Images used to make our magnets are scanned at 9600dpi resolution, reduced to 960dpi for production.
SIZE: This magnet is exactly 1.835 x 2.362 inches OR 4.66 x 5.999 cm (It is about the size of the original matchcover.)
