I chose just to highlight one page of my favorites.
First up we have Tom Terrific from the 73 Set. This was the one Seaver card in the lot and of course it's my favorite card I received. As a lifelong Mets fan whose life hasnt been that long, I never got to see Tom pitch in person, but I've done lots of reading and am certain that he along with Mike Piazza is the greatest Met of all time.
Another card I loved is of the Stork, George Theordore. Besides looking like the A/V guy at your highschool according to the cartoon on the back, he also enjoys marshmellow milk shakes. Now I can die in peace knowing that.
Eddie Kranepool is the quintessential early Met - he held the longest tenure of any of the inaugural squad and lends his name to the great mets blog the Ed Kranepool Society.
Skip Lockwood has a dirty name
Now - I am too lazy to do the proper researching on this, but if memory serves me correctly Joel Youngblood is the only player to play for 2 different teams in one day when he was traded between the Mets and the Expos during a double header. But like I said, I could be wrong. If I am, feel more than happy to correct and I'll be a better person for it.
I am supremely jealous of Bob Apodaca's haircut.
And finally Bobby V - I can barely recognize him without his glasses.
So now that I have this great package, I got one last surprise late last night when I saw that Andy is back in the fold with the 88 Score Traded Blog! So everyone, get ready for a daily dose of mediocre players and better analysis! It's been a great read so far, but there have been errors on both cards 1 and 2 - so lets see how far that continues!
