|1999 Topps # 340|
May 22, 1998 will always be a special date to me, at least in the realm of sports fandom. That's the day the Mets acquired Mike Piazza via trade from the Florida Marlins, thus instantly transforming the team into a legitimate contender. Getting Piazza was like getting a rock star, action hero and superstar athlete all rolled into one. Man, I miss them days. Anyhow, this is Mike's first Topps card as a New York Met.
