Seven Days

1975 Topps #324

Just one week from today, it'll be time for New York Mets baseball!  The Amazins will begin their 2015 campaign in Washington D.C. with a 4:05 p.m. clash against the defending division-champion Nationals.

Some very noteworthy players have worn No. 7 for the Mets throughout the years, including fan favorites like Hubie Brooks, Todd Pratt and Jose Reyes.  But, I'll give the nod to the man who played more games (1,853) in a New York Mets uniform than anyone who has ever walked the earth.  Barring injury or trade, David Wright (1,508) will surpass Kranepool within the next few years.

Added Knowledge:  In 1975, Ed fashioned a career-best .323 batting average.  He was a .261 hitter during his 18-year career.
