Mets Card of the Week: 1991 Ron Darling

1991 LEAF RON DARLING I spent an idle post-holiday hour thumbing through a 3,000-count box of cards this past Sunday morning. It was a box of no special report, containing mostly early ’90s junk from a range of manufacturers, picked clean of any Jeter rookies or the like.

Ron Darling on the Mets fan loyalty oath he signed: "I didn't read it."
