I picked up some more cards during my Black Friday COMC purchases, adding 13 cards and completing 8 more seasons.
|1962 Topps #365|
When I set up the idea for my project I wanted to only have cards of the players in Mets uniforms. The 1962 season is an exception to that - there were no previous year photos to use. At least Topps made things easier by using photographs of the players without hats.
|L-R: 1967 Topps #370; 1968 Topps #572; 1970 Topps #83|
I think I may have to include scans of completed pages on my project page. Something to think about. Any thoughts?
|L-R: 1968 Topps #563; 1986 TCMA All-Time Mets #3M|
|L-R: 1973 Topps #4; 1973 OPC #540|
|1976 SSPC #535|
This Del Unser card slots into the 1975 starting lineup, leaving me with only a Dave Kingman card to find to complete it. (I'm trying to find a 1975 or 1976 SSPC Kingman, or a 1976 Hostess one.)
|L-R: 1999 Finest #159; 2000 Upper Deck #173|
I had to get the Upper Deck card of Henderson diving. It captures him. Hard to believe that he was over 40 in this picture.
|L-R: 2001 Topps Gallery #126; 2014 Topps #US-16|
The Andrew Brown card completes my 2014 starting lineup, and makes it so I have complete lineups from 2006-2017.
I now have 471/504 cards towards my project, and 45/56 seasons are complete.
Moving on to my Christmas packs brings me to two packs of...
The important stuff! And, I'm still not trying the gum.
Speaking of Expos trades, Winningham was part of who they received from the Mets in the Gary Carter trade.
It's weird to see Guerrero and Pena in Cardinals uniforms, and nice to see a Jack McKeon card.
This turned into an Expos hot pack! I think I know where the Wallach card will wind up.
Andy Hawkins double.
Opening two packs and getting two doubles really brings me back to when I was young. It's still fun opening these however.
