Post your Mets related stuff here! Nothing too big or small.

I'll start.....2005 Ultimate Collection /20 and a 2006 Triple Threads /18

These are my most recent two pick ups. Granted, I got them over a month ago because things are pretty slow, what with prices being out-of-control high. Only 4 cards in the last 60 days, according to eBay.

Looking forward to seeing what others have got!!

I FIANLLY was able to buy a new Wright card! That was a crazy long time in between my last ones, my goodness. I have been very unsuccessful at auctions, as you can imagine at this time. Was able to get better luck here with a buy-it-now. Overpaid by a few bucks, but based on the recent card activity, it was actually a pretty decent deal.

2005 Upper Deck Signature Sensations /15. Gets to join it's close cousin, the Signature Sensations die cut /10 that I have.

Anyone else get anything new/exciting?

Strange that one is an on-card auto, while the other is a sticker. It is a mild annoyance, not nearly as bad as some of those multi-player autographs where some are on-card and others stickers, or two different kinds of stickers.....and that's on the SAME card, sheesh!

It's been long over due, I have picked these up over the course of the last month or two, but better late than never :)

A pair a 2006 Bowman Sterling memorabilia cards. Oddly, I had uncirculated Black Refractor /25, but was missing the base and Refractor /199. Go figure, but this completes that mini rainbow minus the Red Refractor 1/1.

2006 Bowman Originals Buyback of the 2005 Bowman Heritage base card, hand numbered /62. I already had this one, but it had a bit of a tear on the uncirculated sticker, so an upgrade was "necessary", haha!

2005 Throwback Threads Pologrounds, this variation /45. People who are aware of these cards know there are a TON of variations. I'm sure one can complete the checklist for a particular player, but it would take a tremendous effort and many years. I only recently bothered trying to get these, so I have a lot of work to do. I only have 6 of the 45 variations, sheesh!

2005 Reflections Cut From the Same Cloth Dual Patch Auto (that's a mouth full to say). Wright is on four of these, each numbered /25, and this one was the last one I needed, the dual with old high school teammate B.J. Upton.

Speaking of 2005 Reflections, I went out and just grabbed the remaining Cut From the Same Cloth Dual Jersey Blue parallels, each numbered /50. At this point, I have all of these cards except the Red dual with Hank Blalock /99 (and the Platinum 1/1s).

Couple of pickups from the last month or two....

I don't normally go for booklet cards, alas, here are two newer ones. Both 2007 Triple Threads, both Sepia parallels /27. Lot of Sepia parallels, including the card below.

And a 2006 Fleer Tradition Sepia parallel completes my mini rainbow or the base, black&white, and sepia.

Picked this fellow up a few days ago. I didn't have one of these, and a reasonable buy-it-now price popped up. I had passed on a few of these Cherry Wood 1/1's from Sterling before, since I wasn't a huge fan. There are multiple copies of Wright cards, 12 to be exact (cards #65-#76 from the base set), so there are 12 1/1's to go with them. It made sense to grab one to just have. And it's pretty nice in person.

2007 Topps Sterling Cherry Wood 1/1 of card #69.
