New York Mets

1986 Topps – Jose Reyes

This card was originally supposed to be released with some ’86 Topps Red Sox cards near the 25th anniversary of that classic World Series. I was not blogging at that time though so hanging onto these cards turned out to be a mistake. I really liked the look of them though so it is nice to be able to release them now. (more…)

1986 Topps – Gary Carter Tribute (1990-1991)

Things have started to get a little shaky in my idea now. I have six cards left and two cards to put them on. I decided to split the cards up into sets of three, and put Gary’s plaque in the fourth slot. I think that it made things look a little better rather than having two years on the final card.

1986 Topps – Gary Carter Tribute (1986 – 1989)

Now we are to card number four in this tribute set to Gary Carter. As with the other cards this one was modeled off the 1986 Topps design that featured Pete Rose after he broke Ty Cobb’s hit record. Unlike the set in 1986 this one actually includes Gary’s 1986 Topps card.

I went back to the drawing board for this card. After just trying to match the other cards up over and over I think that I was slightly off. I brought back the original Pete Rose card back up for placement on this card. I think that it looks a little better.


1986 Topps – Gary Carter Tribute (1983-1985)

Here is the third installment of the Gary Carter Tribute that is modeled after the 1986 Topps tribute set to Pete Rose. The tribute set starts to get into cards here that I collected heavily as a kid. It also gets into Gary’s Mets career with the ’85 Topps traded card of Gary. I decided to leave the All Star and Record Breaker cards out for now. They may come back later in the set, but for now they really would have messed everything up. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Jose Reyes

I thought that it was time to post a couple of my All Star cards again. Jose is a player that seems to be on this team every year. He is an exciting shortstop that does pretty well in the bright lights of New York. (more…)


1986 Topps – Carlos Beltran

With all the rumors swirling around about Carlos Beltran I figured that I had better post this card quick while he is still a member of the Mets. I thought that it would be cool to make some cards of both the Mets and the Red Sox with the ’86 Topps template. This fall will be 25 years since that great World Series. I used some older pictures of players that were no longer on either team, but I did have a few pictures of current players. For the time being Carlos is still a Met. (more…)


1985 Topps Famous Lineage – Wally Backman Jr.

I have seen Wally play Independent ball a couple of times now. The first time was for the Joliet Jackhammers with his father as the manager. Most recently I saw him play for the Sioux City Explorers of the American Association. I always liked Wally so it was a given that I would get this card into the set. Father’s day seemed like a great day to roll some of these cards out. (more…)


1987 Topps – David Wright

This card has been sitting in a folder on my computer for a while. I made a ton of ’87 Topps cards during the snowpocolypse. I have put many of them on the site so far, but I still have a few sitting around waiting to be released. For some reason I still really like this set. I think that it has stood up well over time.

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.
