1986 Topps – Ryan Church
Earlier this winter I came up with the crazy idea of making Mets cards on the ’86 Topps template. I haven’t seen the Mets play since 2008 so the pictures are quite old. As big as the 1985 World Series was for me as a kid the ’86 Series was huge. I watched almost every minute of it on TV. I loved the ’86 Topps set so it was only natural to try and make some of them.
This picture was taken in early 2008 when the Mets were in Chicago to play the Cubs. I had a seat in the bleachers so my camera options were limited. I did get this picture of right fielder Ryan Church though. He hasn’t played for them in quite some time, but why should that stop me from releasing the card?
