1962 Mets Project: Cannizzaro & Chacon

I picked up two more cards for my 1962 Mets Topps team set.

Chris Cannizzaro was drafted by the Mets in the October '61 expansion draft. He hit .241 in 59 games for the Mets in 1962. Cannizzaro left the Mets after the 1965 season.

Elio Chacon was also picked up in the '61 expansion draft. Chacon was coming off a decent 1961 World Series runner-up finish with the Cincinnati Reds. Chacon's 1962 season with the Mets was his last in MLB. He hit .236 in 118 games.
