The Draw of the Cards

Spring Training is ideal for taking pictures of Mets and printing them on cardboard.

Jose Reyes, third baseman (!), evokes 1969 on his 2018 Topps Heritage card, which is the idea behind Topps Heritage, a time machine that propels current players 49 years back in time. Not every card then, never mind now, was shot in Spring Training, but plenty used to be, so when I saw this image, I swooned over how much idealized 1969 Reyes reminded me of actual 1969 Koosman.

Needless to say, anything that evokes 1969 where the Mets are concerned is ideal.
