#17T - Gary Carter
What a card: This is Gary Carter's first Topps card as a New York Met. He was dealt by the Expos on Dec. 10, 1984 for Hubie Brooks, Mike Fitzgerald, Herm Winningham and Floyd Youmans.
How'd that go: Fantastic. In year two of his time as a Met, he was a key figure on a World Series championship team.
Backatya: Carter's two daughters are Christy and Kimmy. Carter filmed a 7-Up commercial with his daughter, Christy, when she was little.
Back-to-back: The original card is No. 230, blogged on Nov. 5, 2013. Seeing these two cards next to each other, Carter looks like he's already worn out being a Met.
The blog wants to speak now: The TV category is updated.
