Here's a nickname that just wouldn't fly in 2021, even if it was just the groundskeeper. It was probably at least questionable in 1979.
And yes, this qualifies as a Mets card, even if it is a minor league card.
Why wouldn't it?
Time to return to the COMC to-be-posted box, and I'm showing the highlights from the 2006 Parkhurst portion of this package. While it did not knock my wantlist down to zero, it was still pretty close.
The fun thing about this set is that the entire checklist is of retired players, and other people associated with the game. UD tried to do something similar with Volume 1 of Chronology, but the enjoyment was not really there with a far tinier base card checklist, and a price associated with a higher end release.
Here's a few more from the slightly-SPd high number portion of the set.
A trio of PWEs from Kerry @ Cards on Cards are the subject of this opening of the ol' mailbag.
And receiving this does make me slightly hopeful that the Tarasenko Rookie Selection might still be a thing.
The box fibs by the way. There were 11 cards in the box, not 8. And it is a hinged box as well! Classy!
Here's the base card. Lots of foil, as you'd expect, but we still get some team colour in the design this year. Future releases would be pretty much all foil on the front.
A rather hieroglyphic signature from Evan Brophey (is that when your brother wins a trophy, tm MST3K) on the first hit from this box. Under Panini's perpetually-odd numbering system, this is considered a base card.
