Mets Baseball Card of the Week: 2015 Topps Chrome Update Yoenis Cespedes

Yoenis-Cespedes
Yoenis Cespedes 2015 Topps Chrome Update baseball card from my collection

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?

Here’s hoping he has enough magic to bring the Mets to the playoffs again in 2016.

Mets Baseball Cards of the Week: 2015 NY Penn League Prospects

Cyclones
David Thompson’s and Vinny Siena’s baseball cards from the 2015 New York-Penn League Top Prospects set

I’m cheating a bit this week to feature two baseball cards of New York Mets prospects. And I’m pretty sure I got my set of 2015 New York-Penn League Top Prospects at a Staten Island Yankees game I went to in September with my friend Greg.

But let’s talk about our two Brooklyn Cyclones players.
