I inadvertently previewed this trade with Thursday's post, since that was the package that the Aguilera autoed card actually came with. Oops!
So, I sent CCC a pile of 1993 and 1992 Topps cards from the wantlist. Probably well over 200, including the '93 Jeter. In return, I got a pile of Mets cards.
My absolute favourite of the bunch was one that instantly became the oldest Mets card in my collection. It was from their first season of 1962, so it is a personal mark that won't be surpassed.
What about the 80s? There were a bunch of those as well. Included among them was the second card I have that saluted this moment in baseball history:
Off to the 90s, where my favourite card might have been this minor league one:
I also added 3 cards of a record holder. Unfortunately, it is Anthony Young, who has a losing streak that made him a beloved player in Mets history. At least for me. In one short paragraph, I've really summed up what it is like to be a Mets fan.
