Minor League Monday: 2008 St. Lucie Mets 20th Anniversary SGA set

In 2008, the St. Lucie Mets produced and distributed one of the most difficult-to-complete minor league baseball card sets of recent years.

To celebrate their 20th anniversary, they created a 70-card set featuring players and managers from throughout their history. They gave away one card at each home game during the 2008 season to the first 500 fans to enter the ballpark.

Needless to say, I don’t have a complete set. I didn’t even know that it existed until Sunday, when I found the Edgardo Alfonzo card at the monthly sports cards show in Rahway, New Jersey.

I’d be interested if anyone can point me in the direction of more information about the set: a full checklist, scans of other cards or where I might be able to acquire some of the other cards. Email PaulsRandomStuff@verizon.net or leave a comment below.
