New York Mets

1967 Topps New York Mets Team Card - Nolan Ryan's 1ST CARD 1967 Topps New York Mets Team Card - Nolan Ryan's 1ST CARD
That's right - Nolan Ryan's FIRST CARD!!! I'll bet you thought his first card was his 1968 rookie card with Jerry Koosman. Well, that may be Ryan's rookie card, but it's not his first !!! Nolan came up briefly with the Mets in 1966 and his stats are reflected on this little known card. You can spend up to $1000 for Ryan's 1968 card or you can own this card for a fraction of that price!! As soon as the word gets around, the 1967 Mets Team card is sure to appreciate in value. This card is graded in excellent to mint condition (also available in very good condition).

1974 Topps Willie Mays 1974 Topps Willie Mays
Will Big Mac ever approach the total career home runs of the legendary Willie Mays? Only time will tell. This is your chance to add the "Say Hey Kid's" LAST CARD to your collection! Willie played in the 1973 World Series for the Mets against the Oakland A's and then retired. This card is conservatively graded in excellent to mint condition.
