Working backwards through the 70's (77 & 78)
What's funny is that I seem to remember the backs of these '78's more than the fronts - crazy, right? I remember that game, the "play ball" on the far right, but I don't actually ever remember playing it. Just remember thinking, "How cool?!? Playing a game with baseball cards!" This was still a few years before I would disappear into the world of Strat-o-Matic.
These weren't really my Mets, I can barely remember those players or cards. I actually grew up as a Yankee fan - until, that was, they traded my hero, Reggie Jackson. I hated them from that moment on, and moved my allegiance over to Shea.
