1962 Project Topps Mets Project: Craig & Drake

I recently picked up two more cards for my 1962 Topps Mets team set project: Roger Craig and Sammy Drake.

Roger Craig was another Brooklyn Dodger to come back and play for the Mets in 1962. Craig lost 46 games in his two seasons with the Mets. He lost 24 during that fairly rough first year in 1962. In '63 he 22 games with an ERA under 4.00.

Sammy Drake's first year with the Mets was his last in baseball. In 1962, Sammy Drake hit .192 in 25 games for the Mets. He's listed as an infielder and outfielder on his card, but played his games at 2nd and 3rd for the Mets.
