Part one in a…maybe two part (depending on when eBay packages arrive) series on this year’s crop of New York Mets Topps baseball cards. This time, let’s take a look at the Base and Update Sets:
Clean white border design for the main Topps set, which been their customary design for the last few years. The Mets get a nice orange and black border, and an orange…swoosh (not to be confused with Nike’s trademark) finish with name and logo on the bottom left of the card.
