We are now into September with the Mets in first place. They look to continue their forward momentum into a playoff run. Due to the Cardinals, Pirates, and Cubs playing great ball, but being in the same division, the Mets must win their division to make the playoffs.
The Mets and Nationals started a crucial series on Labor Day. The first game was exciting with the Mets giving up the lead, but then coming back for the win. The entire team looked ready for this game and did not seem distracted by the recent media hoopla. Now, it is the person at the center of the hoopla to make his start to continue the Mets path to the playoffs.
Moving along with another Zistle trade with user SDre31. Steve was one of the first few trades I completed on Zistle a couple of years ago. This was our second trade.
Those 1987 Topps cards that you can find literally from anyone. These are from the Topps Traded set which I believe finishes off that 1987 set for me.
The bottom-right card is a rookie card of Kelly Stinnett. I know he is not one of those players you trade for, but I was glad to get this card.
I have been to over 20 MLB games, so far, in my life. I have always wanted to catch a foul or home run ball, but have not done so yet. The closest was when Kelly threw me a ball after batting practice. I was maybe 11 or 12 years old and pretty far away from what I recall. I was waving my glove and he threw the ball up to me.
