Well you're probably asking yourselves what did he do to have a title like that??
I've been busy with summer vacations, family stuff, work, and a bunch of other small things that have kept me from posting on my blog. I do still read and look daily at the blogs and applaud those that can post daily or there a bouts.
I finally found some free time to try and get some posts in the pipeline.
This first one is courtesy of Jeff over at 2 by 3 Heroes who I owe a huge apology for not posting about this awesome PWE that came my way. Granted I emailed Jeff shortly after I received it to acknowledge how awesome the cards were, but that is still no excuse to let as much time elapse as I did. I just looked at the envelope and it is dated at the end of June.....JUNE that is almost 3 months ago which is way to long to go without posting. MY APOLOGIES JEFF. I should have found some free time to snap some photos and put together a post while at work or while I had some down time at work via breaks, but lets get this show on the road and get to the goods.
First up is The Franchise or Tom Terrific or you may know him as Tom Seaver.
Next up is is current Hall of Famer Pedro Martinez, ex Mets Carlos Beltran who's still looking at Adam Wainwrights curveball and Ike Davis, along with current Mets player Daniel Murphy in some shiny Chrome
The Highlights of this PWE are these two beauties. One of current Mets closer Familia and the other of Mister Gold Glover Juan Lagares. Familia has filled in quite nicely as the closer and has probably cemented himself in that role for awhile being he has been pretty reliable and nasty at the same time. This Familia is numbered out of /99 and if I remember correctly it is the snow camo or something of that sort parallel from this years Topps. Juan has been dealing with some elbow issues since the beginning of the season and was even told to limit his throwing from the outfield as not to do further damage, but now he has been relegated to the bench due the the nice acquisition of Cespedes who has been tearing it up lately offensively. Juan does come in late in the games as a defensive specialist replacing rookie Conforto who has also been tearing it up since being called up from Double A. I love this Gypsy Queen of Juan and I also have the parallel version numbered to /50 as well
It'll be interesting to see what the Mets do with their outfiled this offseason being I can't see Conforto being sent down and the Mets just amended Cespedes contract where they can negotiate with him like all other clubs and removed the clause where they only had 5 days from the end of the World Series to negotiate with him. I would love to see the Mets resign Cespedes but his payday is going to be a pretty penny and I dont see the Mets offering up the money to keep him plus all the young arms they have.
The Mets currently have and 8.5 game lead on the Nationals with 21 Games left, but I'm not counting on anything being the collapses of 2007 and 2008.
LETS GO METS YA GOTTA BELIEVE!!!!
LETS GO MOUNTAINEERS!!!!!
Jeff thanks again
