Andrew KneelandSenior Writer IApril 9, 2010

After a very nice series victory over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, the Twins are just a few days away from their Target Field Home Opener.

While we root for the home team against the rival Chicago White Sox for the next three days in an attempt to gather some more momentum, why not celebrate this historic occasion by treating yourself to a limited edition memorabilia package ?

Included in the deal is a Target Field commemorative baseball and plaque.

Here is what Nikco Sports Memorabilia has to say about their product:

Baseball Description: One panel on the Inaugural Season Target Field baseball will feature a colorful panoramic shot of the new facility that captures the essence of the outdoor playing field. The official Inaugural Season stadium logo is positioned on another panel. A third panel lists the championship history of the franchise, including the three World Series titles won in 1991, 1987 and 1924 when the team was in Washington. It also lists the six American League pennants (1991, 1987, 1965, 1933, 1925 and 1924) along with Central Division/Western Division crowns. A separate panel contains information on the new ballpark, including capacity, (39,504), the date of groundbreaking (2007), the April 12 first game date against Boston, and the field dimensions to left, center and right.

Plaque Description: The framed and double matted photo plaque measures 15 x 17 inches and will feature a colorful stadium shot in the center. Along the bottom left of the presentation is an action shot of Joe Mauer and to the right is an engraved nameplate and a small capsule of dirt that is authenticated and taken from the Target Field infield under MLB supervision.
