As you've probably already deduced, this is going to be a new segment where I will post a Mets-related baseball card every week or so. They could be current, old school, former Mets or even Met killers. I was inspired a couple weeks back when I was going through some of my old Mets stuff and I got into my baseball card collection from when I was a kid. Flipping through them I started putting some off to the side that I just had to share and before I knew it I had a stack of over 100 cards.
So how better to kick things off than with this 1987 Topps Wally Backman card: (click card to embiggen)
