Did You Know…

The only player to play in the final game in the history of the New York Giants and in the first game in the history of the New York Mets is Frank Thomas (not that one).  Thomas played for the Giants on September 29, 1957 and then suited up for the Mets to start the 1962 baseball season on April 11.

  1. Frank Thomas was our first autograph guest at the Parkersburg (WV) Baseball Card Show in the early 1980’s. As I recall, Frank had lost much of his baseball memorabilia in a fire. We (the show promoters, myself and two of my buddies from the lab) presented Mr. Thomas with a framed collection of his Topps baseball cards for being our guest. Mr. Thomas was so appreciative of our gift. He was a gracious guest and one heck of baseball player.
