I'm a Mets fan, so of course I'm partial --
I hope when he gets a TLS card, it is as a NY Met.

Here's a quote from a NYT article, written around the time of the HOF induction:

The Baseball Hall of Fame announced yesterday that Gary Carter would enter the Hall as an Expo next summer, becoming the first player with a Montreal cap on his plaque. The other option for Carter would have been to wear a cap of the Mets, with whom he won a World Series in 1986 and for whom he is now a catching instructor.

''I'm very torn between both cities, primarily because I played 11 years in Montreal but I played 5 glorious years in New York,'' Carter said last night. ''I can't forget about that, the 1986 championship team.''

Carter would not divulge which team he told the Hall of Fame he wanted to represent, but he told The Journal News of Westchester last week that he considered himself a Met.

''If the Expos are no longer in existence, how is that going to be beneficial to me and my family when we have an opportunity to be part of a family that will be around a long time?'' Carter said last night. ''Everybody knows my feelings. But it wasn't up to me.''
''My heart is still always going to be in New York,'' Carter said.
Let's Go Mets Go!
