Mets Card of the Week: Mystery Met Episode 1

Welcome to the first installment of Card of the Week’s Mystery Met contest.

Here’s a quick rundown of the rules:

The first commenter to name the Mets player pictured here wins this selfsame card, plus a Ya-Gotta-Believicious bonus: a professionally graded 1972 Topps Tug McGraw In Action, in PSA 7 near mint condition.

The contest ends on February 5. If no one has identified the Mystery Met by then, both cards go back into the vault.

Good luck!

    We have a winner, folks!

    GeoffreyT, you are (scarily) correct: this is a 2001 Bowman Heritage C.J. Nitkowski. I blurred the Bowman Heritage logo in the upper-right corner to make things a bit more challenging. Did you know the card or the face?
