Today’s Topps Starting Lineup

giant baseball cards topps new york mets citi field queens

After the free concert in Central Park, I got on the New York Subway to Queens to check out Citi Field. The neighborhood around the stadium is pretty grim, but inside Citi Field is one of the nicest ballparks I’ve ever seen.

As you enter the main entrance you head up an escalator and at the top are giant baseball cards showing you the Mets starting lineup for the day. These are real cards, not a video projection, so someone has to physically change these every day. The cards pictured here are from the 2012 Topps set. I’m guessing they have new ones each year.

From left to right the cards are:
Kirk Nieuwenhuis
Daniel Murphy
David Wright
Lucas Duda
Ike Davis
Scott Hairston
Omar Quintanilla
Josh Thole
RA Dickey

The actual starting lineup ended up being different so I don’t know if there was a late change or if they just try to predict the starting lineup with the cards since they have to have it in place more than a couple hours before the game, and the real starting lineup isn’t usually announced until about an hour before the game.
