1973 Topps New York Mets Team Set

Year 1973
Manufacturer Topps
Team Mets

EX - 5

This 1973 Topps New York Mets Team Set has all of the standard 1973 Topps cards for the team. The 1973 Topps New York Mets Team Set includes three players who eventually were enshrined into the Baseball Hall-of-Fame: Tom Seaver, Manager Yogi Berra and the 42-year-old Willie Mays.

The 1973 Mets put together an 82-79 record for the season and won the N.L. East in an extremely tight race, behind a great starting pitching and not much else.  Then Mets then surprised the highly-favored Reds in the N.L. Championship Series, winning in 5 games.  Trying to pull off another miracle season, as they did in 1969, the Mets met the mighty Oakland A's in the World Series. It was not to be! The 1973 Series went 7 games, before the A's won out.

The cards not included are expensive multi-team rookie cards, that were left out of the team set to keep the cost down. The 1973 Topps was the first set to feature all of multi-player rookie cards by position, instead of by their respective teams. To make a bad idea even worse, Topps waited until 7th Series to issue this cards, making them expensive, as well as undesired. As a result, the 1973 Topps multi-player rookie cards are not considered part of 1973 Topps Team Sets. We feel that they do not offer enough value to team sets to offset the additional expense. If you dis-agree, the 1973 multi-team rookie cards can be purchased individually on our site.
