'69 Fantazy Mets- The Amazin Miracle Mets Team!

1969 Topps threw together a design that took some elements from both of the preceding sets. The stand alone METS over the players photo from '67, the circle, even the same color purple, from '68. It was a good simple design, a natural evolution. There isn't even a hint of what was to come in these players eyes. While we poured over the Topps cards in '69 the team was out there doing
 it, on their road to the World Series.

  1. Great Cards!!! Maybe you can create some 1969 Topps cards for Bobby Pfeil, Jim Gosger, Bob Johnson and Jack DiLauro. Players who played briefly on the 1969 Mets but do not appear on a Topps card as a Met.

    1. Thank you Jake!! I covered those guys for '69 on their 1970 cards. If I can find additional photos of them I'll be happy to add them to the 1969 cards. I prefer the '69t design over the '70t. But 1970 Topps were the first cards I ever bought regularly as a kid, so they have that special place and I made a boat load of them.
