Mets Card of the Week: Mystery Met Episode 7

Mystery Met 7

In your face, J.J. Abrams! Our Episode 7 is releasing a good year and a half before yours…

Like you, we have spared no expense. Just check out that super-realistic CGI ‘stache on our subject. And consider our prize stash: a 2002 Topps Super Teams Keith Hernandez (numbered 1909 out of 1986) and a 2005 Topps Retired Gold Keith Hernandez (numbered 99 out of 500).

So, dear reader, is the Force strong with you? Identify this Mystery Met from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away can you?

Or perhaps you’ll adopt a new strategy, and let the Mookiee win…

    This looks early 1980s to me. The scrubs I remember with a stache are Jerry Martin and Rick Sweet. I seem to recall Sweet’s being bushier so I’m going with Martin.

    Probably a pitcher and showing him in a batting pose is a fake out.

    Ross Jones?

    Not a pitcher Steevy, and not Ross Jones, although that was an awesome guess.

    On April 28, 1984, Jones came up to bat in the bottom of the ninth of a tie game with the first-place Phillies. Facing Al Holland, he smacked a walk-off double, driving in Hubie Brooks. This was his only hit in a Mets uniform.

    A hint: Our subject here is also a member of the one-hit-as-a-Met club. In fact, that one hit was his only career hit…

      Using your hint – how about Mike Bishop? He has one career hit and played on the 1983 Mets.

        You got it, Brian!

        Bishop was a catcher who appeared in three April games for the 1983 Mets. His only MLB hit came in the backend of a doubleheader vs the Pirates, when he connected for a second-inning double off Lee Tunnell.

        Bishop had some outstanding seasons in the Minors, including a 1980 campaign with AA El Paso wherein he batted .325 with 33 HRs and 104 RBI as a 21-year old. Hmm, a catcher whose offensive prowess does not translate from the Minors to the Majors…

        The Mex cards will be in the mail in a couple of days!
