CotG: Turkey Red & Opening Day

The Mets may have won the battle but they definitely lost the war. For the Mets, it is always seems they take one step forward, two steps back as Luis Castillo hurt himself slipping on the dugout steps yesterday and today Jon Niese and Gary Sheffield both look like they are going to miss some games. This is ridiculous and so frustrating.

This is my last $0.50 blister pack from Rite Aid.

2008 Topps Opening Day:
Stephen Drew
Chuck James
Jose Reyes Puzzle Piece
Aaron Hill
Raul Ibanez
Joey Votto

Yes finally a Met. The Jose Reyes puzzle piece is definitely the CotG (Card of the Game) and it is upper body and not his legs (a big bonus in my book). Reyes is only of the many Mets stars in the DL but when he is on he can positively influence the team and the game. But I suspect if the Mets were to break up the core (Reyes, Wright, Beltran), Reyes would be the first to go. Also I have to say one of the best 2007 Turkey Red card has to be Jimmy Rollins. It is a great piece of Jimmy Rollins in action and I think it really captures his hustle and energy in the field.

  1. I don’t have very many Turkey Red’s. The Jimmy Rollins is certainly a nice one. No Rite Aids in IL 😦
