This week’s featured Mets baseball card is a 2015 Topps Chrome Update card of Yoenis Cespedes.
I am in the minority of baseball card collectors that has absolutely no use for Topps Chrome – why should anyone pay more for a card that’s exactly the same as one they already have, just because it’s on flashy cardstock?
This card ended up in my collection by mistake – I was hoping to find a Cespedes Mets card that I could mail to him this spring to take a chance and see if I could get his autograph. It’s really not suitable for that, but a flashy baseball card does seem suitable for a flashy guy like Cespedes.
Here’s hoping he has enough magic to bring the Mets to the playoffs again in 2016.
