So Next up in my recent repack box purchase was 5 packs of 89 Topps. Let's see what we got
Gary Carter Record Breaker
Bobby Bonilla All Star
Robin Ventura #1 Draft Pick
Well - got a rookie of my all time favorite player Robin Ventura, Also got bobby Bo who is a great signer by mail, 2 Mets, a Gator, and a catcher to throw from his knees - great way to start!
A HOF in Boggs, the "rifelman" Shawon Dunston and another Met - so far so good!
Andy Bens #1 Draft Pick
Not too much here besides Chili, Mike, and Mark Davis
Pretty good pack here of people most Mets fans hate. 1) Mike Scott and his damn ball scoffing almost costing us a trip to the world series 2) Barry Bonds - well we all hate him 3) Roger Clemens - another nemesis in 86 - also was originally drafted by the Mets but chose college over the Apple and 4) Lee Mazzelli - we actually don't hate him, but I am pretty sure he laid pipe in my cousin Denise.
Cecil Espy Gold Cup
Pudge is really the only player of note here - I had a lot of fun with these packs especially since I just started putting together the set.
The good old days weren't that long ago
