CotG: 1989 Topps Mookie Wilson

Yesterday, with Josh Johnson on the mound, the Mets gave up on the game even before it began. I understand that the players needed some rest but it doesn’t make sense to rest most of the starters/best players at same time when the last couple of years the NL East was won by only a few wins. Still it is good to see that they can bounce back today with a strong all-round win. Although, it is troubling to see injuries are creeping up again to an already weaken team.

For today I got a pack of 1989 Topps. It is an 80’s pack so I not expecting much.

The pack:
Mark Parent
Bob McClure
Don Mattingly
Mookie Wilson
Jeff Sellers
Jack Armstrong
Jose Lind
Jose Canseco All Star
Chuck Crim
Pat Tabler
Paul Molitor
Mike Aldrete
Eric Show
Melido Perez
Mark Langston

Jose Canseco got bashed hard in one of most dismal MMA debuts ever.

Not too bad as a whole. Mookie Wilson is one of the heroes of the 1986 Mets proving that it is better to lucky than good. Still I was born on October 1986 so the 86 Mets cards will always be kind of special to me.
