Mets Baseball Cards of the Week: 2016 Topps Series 1 team set

This year’s Topps flagship set has been out for a couple of weeks now, and I finally got my Mets team set delivered this weekend. This is the first time Topps hasn’t used borders in the main set, and I don’t really miss them.

I’m less of a fan of the “smoke” effect and other digital “enhancements” to the the photos, but there’s got to be somebody out there who likes the style decision. At least Topps started out with a strong selection of photos.

Player selection was also pretty good – 11 of 13 individual cards depict players who are still Mets. Michael Cuddyer‘s retirement was a surprise decision, and Jon Niese was traded over the winter.

Of the 14 Mets cards, I think David Wright‘s is my favorite.

  1. Ok, I guess I can understand that they didn’t expect Cespedes or Colon to be back, but why in the world doesn’t Lucas Duda merit a card? Or Steven Matz?

    I’m not thrilled with this year’s design–don’t like the smoke effect or the partially obscured logo–but the Mets seem to have gotten damn good photography.
