It was the worst of seasons
IT WAS THE WORST OF SEASONS!
My Mets did it to me again this year. I still love 'em though. I'll probably do a 2008 retrospective later in the year (When Sportscenter is filled with nothing but football and hockey. Ugh!). For now, I will console myself and maybe my friends at Dinged Corners with a few packs of baseball cards.3 packs of Retail wax featuring Yankees on the front!
(2 even have Yankee Stadium cards inside. Why no Shea Stadium Legacy?)
Mattingly, Winfield, R.Jackson - 2 Yankee HOFers and a Yankee Fave.
F.Thomas - Future HOFer.
Glavine - Future HOFer who reminds me of the 2007 collapse of the New York Mets.
Beltran - MET! Another solid year for Carlos in NY. Too bad he can't pitch the 8th and 9th.
Griffey, Clemente, Vlad, And Joe D (Charcoal flavored) - Nice set of players. But I would rather have a single card of any of these 4 than 1 card with all of them.
Helton - Disappointing season for the Rocks the year
Kai Liu - 1 of 2 Chinese players to sign w/ MLB teams. Liu saw no action in any league this season.
Sizemore - Another solid effort in his 4th full season of big league baseball. He is an MVP in waiting.
Not a great deal for $3 but I did get this David Wright card free!!!!Goudey
J.Morris - I remember that 10-inning shutout against the Braves in the World Series. That makes me feel a lot better!
Markakis - Great young player on a bad team.
Mazeroski - I love the old players in this set. Maz made the Hall with his glove and some timely postseason hitting.
Billingsley - He is the ace of my simulation baseball league this year. I am in the playoffs!
H.Matsui - Godzilla had a tough year with injuries.
P.Fielder - He is as hot as they come as of late. The Brewers made the right moves down the stretch and deserve the playoffs. The Mets do not. Again.
M.Young - His contract might haunt the Rangers for quite a few years.
J.Reyes (B&W SP) - It has a bent corner but it is a nice end to these 3 packs and to the Mets season.
