Our next trade is a Blogger trade. This time with Bo over at Baseball Cards Come to Life. Bo made a post about obtaining about 40,000 cards from Craigslist.
Bo sent out a lot of cards to various traders. I ended up receiving a small USPS Priority box bull of Mets. The majority of cards were early 1990's releases, but there we still plenty that I still needed for those sets.
Even while getting 40,000 cards, I was still able to send Bo the same sized box back in return.
Some interesting cards in the cards shown above. First, there is Jeff Kent is letting former Met Mark Carreon smell his armpit. Second, there is Ryan Thompson suffering from some abdominal discomfort. Not sure why Pinnacle would chose this for his ball card. Finally, there is power hitting Carl Everett about to murder bunt a baseball. Very intense.
I really like receiving Lance Johnson Mets cards. He only played for the Mets for a season and a half, but he was pretty great for the Mets. His career year was with the Mets in 1996. That year he was an All-Star starter and led the National League in hits, singles, and triples. He had a WAR of 7.2 that year, too (if you are into sabermetrics).
I wish Topps would get him on some Archives releases. I do not believe there are any auto or relic cards of him out there, Mets or not. Anyone know an address to send a card to him for a TTM auto?
