1986 Topps – John Maine
Since they won their title 25 years ago I made a few 1986 Topps Mets cards a while back. I explained that the reason why was because I made a killing trading the Mets cards back in the day for Sox cards. Everyone wanted the cards of the World Champs.
I took this picture of John as he was warming up before a game in 2008 at Wrigley. I had never seen the Mets before, and after 2008 I had seen them play three times thanks to a doubleheader at Shea. Sitting in the bleachers you don’t have many chances to get a good picture of the starting pitcher. I tried to get one of him before he got too far away.
