Set: 1992 Leaf - Black Gold (Rate)

Card: #64 Robin Yount

“ If I'm not mistaken, this could be the first 'parallel' set in sportscard history. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ One of the best outfielders in the 80's. ” -addysdaddy

“ Leaf's answer to the Topps Gold parallels. Like any black bordered cards these are very hard to keep in mint condition because the edges chip. ” -sascards67

“ Robin Yount, Simply my favorite all-time player and the classiest player I have ever met. ” -Ray

Card: #25 Henry Mercedes

“ They told him he was only posing for the card and not actually getting any Mother's cookies right? ” -addysdaddy

Set: 1979 Topps (Rate)

Card: #69 Elliott Maddox

“ The one period of my life when I drifted from the Mets was the late 1970s. I was in my early teens, and I decided it was more interesting to watch the Cosmos professional soccer team than it was to watch a team that fielded players like Elliott Maddox, who actually was from a neighboring town. It was really hard arguing with Yankees fans (just as it is now) over which team was better. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Did the Mets ever consider feeding this guy? ” -addysdaddy

“ Generic stance, generic background, generic design, generic player. This could be the least remarkable card of all time. ” -sascards67

Set: 1987 Donruss (Rate)

Card: #118 Darryl Strawberry

“ The Straw Man. D-Train. What Could Have Been. A good guy who let drinking ruin a career that should have put him in the Hall of Fame. What a sweeping, powerful swing. A great time to be a Mets fan for sure- hard to believe a card like this could have sold for $1 back then- now it's dime box fodder. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ Is that baseball in his hand or an 8ball of cocaine? ” -addysdaddy

“ Darryl, Darrrryyyllll, Darrrryyyyylllllllll, DDDaaarrrryyyylllllll! ” -cynicalbuddha

Set: 1991 Topps (Rate)

Card: #514 Mike Stanton

“ Ever notice on the back of these cards some of them you can see the 40th anniversary logo and some you can't see it at all...must have been when the ink was running low on the printer ” -addysdaddy

“ Mike Stanton is further proof that if you are left-handed you can pitch forever. Only Jesse Orosco, another lefty, pitched more major league games than Mike's 1178. This is still my favorite design of the 1990's. ” -sascards67

Set: 1992 Panini Stickers (Rate)

Card: #44 Sandy Alomar Jr.

“ The design looks like sharpened pencils laying side to side ” -addysdaddy

“ Compared to the armor catchers wear today, Sandy looks like his gear came from a Little League team.. ” -wamk

“ This design is just a mess. ” -sascards67

“ I need a pair of sunglasses to look at this thing! ” -bigsmooth

“ Ugh, that left hand border. Imagine how nice this card would be if they had straightened off the left side... ” -wmcduff

“ Is there a baseball card law that says the team name must be inside lollipop colored circles? And thanks for the facsimile autograph, now I know it's definitely Justin. ” -NJDevils
