It’s been a few weeks since Topps Update came out. In one sense, Topps did a nice job with their selection of Mets players – six of the nine had not appeared on a regularly-issued baseball card as a Met before. In another way, the player choice was terrible – just three of the nine are still part of the Mets’ organization.
Here’s a look at the Mets cards in the Topps Update base set:
Jacob deGrom, Rafael Montero, Daisuke Matsuzaka and Bobby Abreu all have short-printed photo variations, but I haven’t gotten any of them yet and I’m really not sure how much effort I want to put into tracking them down.
Tomorrow I’ll share some of the Mets inserts in Topps Update.
