1998 UPPER DECK REY ORDONEZ GROOVY KIND OF GLOVE Lest you think that Mike Piazza was the only Mets player featured in the pop-culture-happy insert sets of days gone by, here’s Rey Ordonez on a 1998 Upper Deck Retro Groovy Kind of Glove card. Because of course there was nothing more relevant to the kids of the late ’90s than a twice-over easy-listening hit (The Mindbenders in 1966 and Phil Collins in 1988).
