One Met at a Time, Vol. 3
[Ed. Note: Since my Mets collection recently eclipsed the 7k plateau, I figured it might be fun to drop in a few single-card posts here and there to celebrate the achievement.]
Player: Derek Bell
Card Info: 2001 Upper Deck Vintage, #284
Blatant rip-offs or not, I liked the UD Vintage line a lot. The cardstock was sturdy but not too thick or rigid and overall I found the cards to be pretty attractive. And, speaking of attractive, Derek Bell's mustache is in a class by itself. Bell and 'stache played just one season (2000) in Queens.
At the time of this posting, I have seven Derek Bell cards in my Mets collection.
