Here's the lot Mets Cardboard sent me the other day:
"Some kinda nice!" I was especially happy to get that '93 Topps RC. Crazy as it seems, I don't recall even ever seeing that card before. Another highlight is the squared-around-to-bunt shot.. as a closer, Trevor didn't get many plate appearances (36).
Now let's sort out my entire PC by year...
That's 101 cards by my count.
Again, thanks to Justin, Bo, TJ, Matt, and everybody else who ever traded me Trevor cards over the past couple years (The vast majority of these cards came by way of trades). "Big cards" I picked up myself include the 2 autos and 2 minor league cards from back when he was still an infielder.
It'll be interesting to see if HOF voters induct him right away or make him sweat an extra year or two. If it weren't for Mariano one-upping him for the title of baseball's all-time greatest closer, it wouldn't even be a question.
I look forward to him to start popping up in sets again and give Tony Gwynn some company as the token Padre legend in a checklist that includes retired players. I don't believe he's shown up on any cards since his playing days yet, somewhat surprising to me.
Welp, thanks for looking at these pictures of my Trevor Hoffman baseball cards!
