Zistle Trade #17

This Zistle trade was with user glassnickels.

Not too long before glassnickels sent a trade request, I had purchased a number of 2007 Upper Deck Goudey packs.  I found them in the clearance section at a local drug store for $0.75 a pack.  I ended up with a few Mets, a number of short prints, and a Ken Griffey, Jr. relic.  Griffey was one of my favorite players to collect back in the day and pulling a relic was quite the surprise.

Anyway, glassnickels requested a bunch of these for his set.  He offered quite a large number of cards in return when compared to my previous Zistle trades.

I debated leaving off those 1991 Fleer, but I just need one of each Met.  They look bad due to their yellow color, but at least they look different.

Some more glorious 1992 cards from Donruss and Score.  It looks like Score kept to two basic types of card shots that year.  Hitters hitting and pitchers pitching.

I sometimes forget that Carlos Gomez started out with the Mets.  He was part of the deal that brought Johan Santana from the Minnesota Twins to Queens.

Zistle Trade #16

This Zistle trade with user jkgrice was a Topps trade.  I offered up some miscellaneous Topps cards for some Mets in return.  A couple of modifications later and we had a trade.

The 1992 Topps set had some decent card photography.  The Hubie Brooks card is a good action shot showing two base runners on the move.

I did not notice this until looking at these scans, but all of these cards (except the last one) show the Mets various home game uniforms.  Other than their colors, the Mets have stayed pretty consistent with their uniforms.
