I always loved the '72 special cards. The entire set, really, but In Action cards just blew me away.
And the corresponding cardback puzzle piece for the In Action card:
Curtis's regular issue mfc card was released a few weeks ago but I may as well include it here as well. I like how Granderson is doing this spring. Looks like he still has plenty of gas left in his tank.
Dallas Green passed a way last week. He played for the Mets for a few months in 1966. He only played in 4 games and pitched a total of 5 innings. He gave up 2 HRs in those five frames to the tune of a 5.40 ERA.
Green had a career 20–22 win-loss record and 4.26 ERA in 185 total games, with 46 games started.
More well known for his days managing the Phils, Dallas managed the Mets from 1993 until 1996. I didn't think he was around that long. In those four seasons no Mets team broke the .500 mark. In total he was 229-283 as the manager of the Mets. Not such a great run, and I didn't really like his managing style at the time. But still, he was a decent manager. He even managed the Yankees for one season in 1989. I don't think I knew that. His MLB career totals as a manager was 454 wins and 478 loses.
RIP Mr. Green.
