#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.

Pound for pound, this might be my favorite card ever. Gary Carter as a Met was a dream come true for 10 year old Max and this card was just heaven for me. If only that 1985 season had gone better for the Mets - a refrain old Max has gotten used to all too well. RIP Kid.
