One: well..., WORLD CHAMPIONS! On years the Mets went all the way the entire team roster will get the Z treatment (if possible-some player photos are hard to find).
This worked very well, though inconsistent. I would get tips of anywhere from a nickle to (once in a blue moon) a dollar. Averaged between one quarter and two quarters, pretty much. Fifty cents could get me four packs (they were 12¢ with tax). I thought that was excellent. I'd carry bags after school for a few hours and then right before running home for dinner, buy as many packs as I could.
Competing with Topps regular cards were the Topps Super Cards(the BIG cards)and I did get all of the Mets in that set. They weren't released in the series format and it was easier because there were only two Mets, Seaver and Agee.
In J.C.Martins card we can see Duffy Dyer waiting patiently in his squat for the photograpgher to get to him. NEXT!

A two part puzzle team card. Yea, I just made that up.
Oh, I almost forgot. I promised Ron Hunt a 70 card with the Mets!
Sorry I can't photoshop you a 69 WS ring Mr. Hunt.
Fun Fact: In the fantazy card on the left Ron is wearing Jim Fregosi's mustache from 1972.
