Mascots & minis

Most of my baseball card collecting these days is limited to the New York Mets and various minor league team sets I manage to pick up along the way.

Occasionally, there are exceptions. In 2011, I decided to try to complete the set of mascot inserts from Topps’ Opening Day set. After a few recent additions, I’m only missing four more. (Needless to say, I did not try again in 2012 or 2013.)

Does anyone know why the Swinging Friar™ is identified on the front of his card, but D. Baxter the Bobcat is not?

A larger but more recent project is attempting to finish the set of 50 1972-style mini cards from Topps Series 2. Thanks to a few recent purchases and a couple of cards that Anthony sent me, I am almost halfway there.
