Have always been fascinated by this card. Is he laughing hysterically at something??

I was such a dangerous hitter I even got intentional walks during batting practice.

Of every mainstream '60s Topps card, I would say this was the toughest to find in a condition and a price I was comfortable with.

I have alway liked this 1977 Strikeout leaders card he shared with Nolan Ryan. Seaver looks like he has just told an off color joke and Ryan looks like he just aint having that.

I'll post this, instead.



This Seaver was part of McFarlane's first Cooperstown Collection series back in 2004. Their sports picks figures quickly became very popular, and the realism of them was perfected within just a few years. I picked mine up about three months. There's another of him in a Red Sox home white uniform, too.

These look great next to a signed baseball and rookie card.

RIP, Tom.

Default Tom Seaver, sad day :(

A couple of my favorite Seaver cards. I sold his Topps RC a few years ago and still regret it.

My only Seaver card. Bought it with my dad, who grew up watching the Mets, at a card show probably 10 years ago.

Hey, Adam - Did you know that the '74 Seaver appeared in a movie?

'Switchback' - starring Dennis Quad and Danny Glover.

Not necessarily 'cards', but two of my most treasured Tom Terrific items. The photo is in a picture book by Walter Iooss; beautiful photos of ballplayers both in action and portrait.

I was fortunate to meet Mr. Seaver and get both of these autographs in person several years ago.

I saw Seaver pitch at Shea many times growing up. My dad would take the day off from work and take me for day games when he was pitching sometimes. I always thought it was a huge coincidence we always went when he pitched until I realized years later he chose those games on purpose. We usually bought the tickets right at Shea day of game and sat in the Loge section most of the time. I was there when he threw his 200th K in the 9th straight year; he needed ten to do it IIRC.

I was also there they day the Mets retired his number and still have the bumper sticker they handed out after the game. Went to that one with my wife (of all of two months back then) and some friends and remember it like yesterday.

Here's the bootleg 1974 Broder Mets Tour of Japan set Seaver card and the Seaver Day Bumper Sticker. RIP to an all time great.

I have that same book - bought it new in 1984 from a Waldenbooks (remember them?) Amazing photography - we should start a thread just on this book.

Someone posted this card on a thread about weird cards a few years back and I had to have one. Apparently they are not too common either, but I lucked into a signed one.

Not a card, but a profile from the 1967 Mets program...
