Last year, a fellow Mets fan surprised me with a bunch of the Topps Now cards released during the team’s Wild Card-winning season.
For those unfamiliar with Topps Now, just about every day during the baseball season, Topps produces one or more baseball cards focusing on a highlight from the previous days’ games. Those cards are available for 24 hours, and Topps prints however many people buy.
(So far, the biggest print run for a Topps Now card was 11,550 for one commemorating Ichiro’s 3000th hit last season. The smallest print run is 143 for a card celebrating an Elvis Andrus walk-off single in April.)
The first Mets player featured in this year’s regular season set was Yoenis Cespedes, marking his three home run game on April 11 in a victory over the Philadelphia Phillies.
At that point on the calendar, I was feeling a lot more optimistic about the Mets’ season than I am now and I decided I would try to keep up with the Topps Now offerings for 2017.
Here’s hoping there will be more Mets highlights to celebrate before the year is over.
