Eight Days

1986 Fleer Box Bottom #C-7

Just eight days until the New York Mets begin their 2015 season!  The Metsies will be in Washington on April 6 to battle Matt Williams' Nationals.

Surprisingly, there haven't been too many No. 8s in Mets history, as only 14 players or coaches have worn the number over the course of 53 seasons.  Yogi Berra (both as a player and manager), Ronn Reynolds and Carlos Baerga each wore 8 for the Mets, but can there be any greater than Gary Carter?  It's a no-brainer!

Added Knowledge:  Kid won the NL Silver Slugger and finished third in MVP voting in 1986, when he cracked 24 homers and drove in 105 runs.



  1. Love that Carter card! Totally agree that this choice is a no-brainer.

  2. Can't wait to see who you go with for number 7.
