eBay Summer Purchases Continued: Franchise Edition

Another edition of my summer eBay purchases.  Well, I do not see another one of these in my drafts, so I guess this is the last edition.  It only took a couple of seasons...

This time we have the "Franchise Edition" and look at Tom Seaver and David Wright.

Tom Seaver really needs no introduction to Mets fans.  His accomplishments are well known among baseball fans:
1967 National League Rookie of the Year
3-time NL Cy Young Award (1969, 1973, 1975)
1969 World Series champion
Elected to the Hall of Fame in 1992 (highest first ballot vote percentage)

Seaver has quite of few modern cards, but not a whole lot of variety of photos.  Not complaining, just an observation.

The current face of the franchise is, of course, David Wright.  While the 2014 season will hopefully go down as an off-year for him, he still ranks among the best Mets player of all-time.  He currently is the all-time Mets career leader in runs, hits, doubles, and RBIs.  


  1. Fellow Mets fan here ;) Nice looking Wright cards.I like our chances this year,with Cuddy and Harvey coming back!

    1. Same here. I think people are underestimating us. We do have some what if to watch for, but I am feeling good!
