...who wants to see my new shiny Dickey?
This marvelous little pile came from the Night Owl, who when he pulled the R.A. Bowman card not only earmarked it for me right away, but somehow resisted the urge to make the obvious lame joke I did. That is why Night Owl is a better man than me (and most of us). In my defense, dick jokes are much easier than college residence assistant jokes. Also included are an awesome 3-D David Wright from this years Opening Day. I was quite fond of the 2010 3D inserts and these are equally nifty. I may have to find a lot of these to make a page. I have also grown to enjoy the sheen on this year's gold Topps parallels; I already have a page of those, though. That Mr. Turkey Dwight Gooden card combines my favorite failed Met and oddball food issues...what's not to love? I also must give a shout out to the Topps Fan Favorites cards he included, Tom Seaver and Nolan Ryan cards are always appreciated, that but sticking out there belongs (fittingly) to Sid Fernandez - who may have been the widest pitcher I have ever seen, and I had never known that Ron Swoboda card existed, and now I need a second one for my Rookie All Stars collection. Finally, I must say the 1984 Fleer set is not my favorite, I find it a little too minimalist, but I do find the blue stripe works well for teams with blue as a main color and, since the 1983 Mets spent a lot of time in blue 80's style pull overs, the team looks great in this set. I don't have many of the 1984 Fleer Mets for some odd reason, but now I have two more, including the OG Brian Giles. Thanks Night Owl!
