I started a few draft posts last month with the idea of posting them over time, but haven't had the chance to get back to them. Let's see if I can get things going again...
In return, I received a number of Mets cards.
I have never been a big fan of the Opening Day sets. I get that the set is marketed more towards casual or younger fans, but I wish they would make the cards somewhat different than the standard set. The 2008 Topps Opening Day set was nice in that Topps went with a different color border (red versus the white of the standard set).
I also received these 2008 Topps Opening Day Flapper cards in the trade. The Jose Reyes has already been "flapped". It is a cool concept for the kids, but too hard to photo each fold.
I figured that I already had all the Mets players from the 1989 Fleer set, but I guess I did not. Only five more to finish that one off (30, 44, 50, 51, 52).
