I’ve yet to see any of this year’s Topps Update cards at my local Target, but I might as well stop looking – I’ve already gotten just about every card I would really want. I bought the main Mets team set from an eBay dealer last month, and I’m now starting to acquire some of the insert cards.
Before Thanksgiving, my friend Bart sent me this Matt Harvey card, one of the red-border parallels exclusive to Target.
Remember how excited we all were when the Mets traded for Johan Santana? At least his no-hitter this year will leave us with a happier memory than his valiant, if futile, attempt to keep the Mets alive in the 2008 pennant race.
Gary Carter will always be my favorite baseball player, and I’m happy to add a new card to my collection when I can.
Thanks for the cards, guys!
