One Met at a Time, Vol. 6
[Ed. Note: Since my Mets collection recently eclipsed the 7.5k plateau, I figured it might be fun to drop in a few single-card posts here and there to celebrate the achievement.]
Player: Alberto Castillo
Card Info: 1994 Bowman, #23
Is 1994 Bowman the best of the modern Bowman sets? I dunno, but I think it's got a place at the table if you're ever having the discussion. Unless I'm mistaken, I think it's the only Bowman set that went full-bleed photo on the front. Castillo, by the way, was a Met for four seasons. His defining moment was a pinch-hit, walk-off single in the 14th to sink the Phillies in the '98 season opener.
As of this post, I have four cards of Alberto in my Mets collection.
