A Spider-man fan who loves the Mets wrote this post on his blog and it's pretty awesome.

As I’ve alluded to in the past, baseball, and more specifically, the New York Mets, has been an integral part of my life even longer than Spider-Man. Before I became accustomed to rifling through a Spidey comic and then storing it in a bag and board for safe-keeping, my favorite thing to do was to go to the local smoke shop in my old neighborhood, drop 25 or 50 cents on a pack of Topps baseball cards, and become entranced with wonder as I sifted through those wonderful, sweet-smelling pieces of cardboard. I could barely read, but I was able to recognize some of the players, and of course I would always put aside all of my “Mets” cards because those were the “special” ones in every pack.
