Marv was one of the early Mets' true folk heroes, symbolizing much of the early spirit of the team: Good cheer through humbling experiences. And let it not be forgotten that the initials of his name actually spelled out "MET." He's shown here on this 1994 Upper Deck All-Time Heroes card missing yet another wild throw to first base. Beneath the stats box there is another card shown, one that has been autographed by Marvelous Marv. Two other cards are pictured too, featuring a Throneberry specialty—an error!
