The first Topps baseball cards of 2013 came out last week. I bought a few packs on Friday, and here are my first Mets cards of the year:

Topps picked a cool photo of  “Captain Kirk,” but try not to laugh too hard after you read the write-up on the back.

I think Jesse Orosco‘s appearance record is safe from Bobby Parnell.

  1. Yeah, only a thousand more games to catch Orosco. I’ll be in an old-age home by then.
