There is nobody who can question that Gary Carter was at his best when he was a Montreal Expo, but “The Kid” was still a solid player when he signed as the Mets Catcher.  Carter went to four All Star Games as a Met (though realistically he shouldn’t have made the last two) but finished 6th and 3rd respectively in MVP voting for his first two seasons as a Met.  Carter would help the Mets win the 1986 World Series Championship and will always be remembered in the Big Apple.
