Photographic Evidence that Alomar Played for the Mets
I would love to see an insert set some time featuring well-known players depicted with teams that have never appeared on a card, or very few. Obviously Alomar would be an example with the Mets. But there would also be Gary Gaetti and Jose Cruz Jr. with the Red Sox, Steve Carlton with the Giants, Juan Marichal with the Dodgers, Hideki Matsui with the A's, and several more. I think that would be a creative and interesting insert set.
One of my collection resolutions this year was to find an autographed 8x10 with the Mets and I found it. There were several to choose from, but I chose this one because I love the action shot. I have determined that this photo is from the game on August 23, 2007. That is Milton Bradley of the Padres being tagged out at the plate. Moises Alou was credited with the assist for throwing out Bradley at the plate. Alomar had a single in five at-bats during the game.
