Zistle Trade #82: SWATty67

Let's take a quick break and discuss the World Series.  It's been a week since the Houston Astros won their first World Series trophy in their franchise's history.  It was a pretty great World Series with some incredible games.

I had my hopes that the Astros would win it all.  I was rooting for them because I wanted Carlos Beltran to get that ring he waited 20 seasons to win.  It would have been great if the Dodgers won because of Curtis Granderson, but then there is the Chase Utley factor.  The Astros just have too many things to like about them that make rooting against them too difficult.  They also don't have Chase Utley.

Now, back to the cards!  This time with another new trade partner in Paul.  Pretty simple trade overall, if I recall correctly.

Also features new World Series champion Collin McHugh.  Collin never caught on with the Mets and was traded to the Rockies for Eric Young, Jr. in 2013.  He was claimed off of waivers by the Astros where started to shine.  In the Mets defense, they were rich in pitchers and could afford to lose a potential breakout to fill a hole in their bench.

This Jose Reyes Rockies card wasn't at Citi Field either.  This looks like it was from Wrigley Field which I believe is where he made his Rockies debut after being traded for Troy Tulowitzki.  So far, my thought about former Mets cards showing them playing the Mets seems to be falling flat.
