I didn’t get a chance to watch the Mets game today but the bottom line is the Mets won in extra innings, 9-8. So for this Mets win, I have three packs left over of 2008 Tristar Projections High # Series.
Neil Ramirez Auto
Billy Crystal Reflective- kind of cool I guess
There were bigger prospects in this pack but it was a tossup between Eric Niesen and Franciso Pena, Met prospects, for the CotG (Card of the Game). I ended up picking Eric Niesen. The tipping point was that he was a Brooklyn Cyclone at some point in his career. The Cyclones is a first- rate minor league organization and every game is great experience. Plus the tickets for Cyclones are far less than tickets to Citi Field and the players are more approachable. So out of the two blasters, I got two Cyclones players. Not bad.
Also, if you haven’t heard already Upper Deck just renewed their license to make baseball cards. This is good because, in general, I like Upper Deck products more than Topps and it always good to have competition.
