Mets Baseball Card of the Week: 2016 Topps MLB Wacky Packages promo

ny-mittsThis week’s featured Mets baseball card is really a sticker, a promo for Topps’ MLB Wacky Packages product that’s coming out in March. It’s part of my collection thanks to one of my blog readers, but I’m really not sure what to say about the “N.Y. Deli Meat Mitts.” (John also sent along some other, more traditional baseball cards and I’m sure I will get to featuring some of them in the days ahead. All are much appreciated.)

I have to admit that I’m not really feeling the spring training vibe this year. Sure, it was fun when camps officially opened a couple of weeks ago. But since then, all we’ve had to focus on are stories about Yoenis Cespedes‘ car collection, the new slide rule, and a whole bunch of other stuff that doesn’t seem very interesting.

Maybe Friday’s first Mets spring training game telecast will rekindle some of my enthusiasm. (It probably will for the first few innings… until the field is invaded by players wearing football numbers and identified in on-screen graphics as “minor league guy.”)

But I don’t think I’ll really be excited about baseball season until Sunday night, April 3rd, when the Mets play their first game that counts.
