Cody Ross, the best New Mexico has to offer
Brett Myers mini

To be fair, New Mexico appears to have 12 major leaguers total from the state, and Cody is the only active player, so far as I can tell. The best New Mexico really has to offer? Probably Ralph Kiner or Vern Stephens.  I’m sure Topps could have done so much more with this set, and the inclusion of old timers is just another idea that would have made it that much better.  Who but the set collector would want a Cody Ross/New Mexico flag card?

Speaking of set building, two more cards I needed, eight more I didn’t. And so the trade pile grows.  I’ll have a list of wants when this is all said and done.
