1965 Topps - Mets Rookies, Swoboda and McGraw

1965 Topps, #533.

This great rookie card has two Mets who played key roles in the 1969 Miracle Mets season.

Ron Swoboda's 9th inning diving catch off the bat of Frank Robinson helped Tom Seaver pitch a 10 inning complete game and gave the Mets a critical win in the 1969 World Series.

McGraw kept the team loose while saving 12 games in the 1969 season.
