Wow the Mets actually swept a series.
For the last CotG (Card of the Game) of the year, I have something special. I have this.
And it is serialed 10,817/100,000
And this is what you get
The first thing I notice is the packaging is like a ring box with felt on the inside protecting the cards. (I can’t find my camera right now so I might take a picture of it later.) Yet some of the cards are still damaged with slight chipping on the edge. However I bought it from the discount bin knowing the box was a little damage. This set must have been expensive back in the 1990’s and it only cost me $3.
The second thing I noticed was that the cards are ugly and I am not a big fan of the Dufex process. I don’t really know why but they just aren’t appealing.
The CotG is easily Mike Piazza, my favorite player.
All in all, it was a bad year to do something like Card of the Game posts, where I open a pack every time the Mets won. Simply this year was one of the worst in history. It’s just my luck.
Card of the Game: By the Numbers
70 Mets wins= 70 CotGs
24 cards of a player pictured as a Met (34%)
9 cards from the 80’s
6 cards from the 90’s
55 cards from the 2000’s
69 baseball cards
1 football card
I was trying to find which player was represented the most but there are too many tied with 3.
