Can anyone name who the NY Mets top paid outfielders are for the 2013 Season?
If you guessed anyone on the 40 man roster, you're sadly mistaken. Thanks to the team not having any money to pay their payroll and constantly deferring bad free agent contracts, the top two paid outfielders on the Mets this year are Jason Bay and Bobby Bonilla. Yes Bobby fricking Bonilla will be making about a million dollars until the year 2035. Could you imagine that? The guy has been retired for 12 years now. His annual salary in 2001 was only $5.9 million, but instead they're going to be paying him $1.19 million until he's 72 years old.
2013 Collecting Goals.
About half the cards in the actual lot were doubles which is a bummer, but on the flip side about half the cards were new additions to the collection. Here's some of my favorites.
|2008 Topps Milestones 24/150|
2005 UD Sweet Spot Gold 391/599
2005 Topps Rookie Cup 357/499
Overall this lot got me 29 new Jason Bay cards to add to my collection of the 50. Not bad odds.
