Called up from Binghamton in August 2005 when Mike Piazza broke a bone in his wrist, Jacobs--an outstanding minor-league hitter--smashed a three-run homer in his first major-league at-bat. Because of that home run, his expected return to the minor leagues was delayed, and he went on to break records for home-run proficiency for both the Mets and all-time baseball history: No one ever reached four career home runs in fewer at-bats than Mike. Came back in 2010 just long enough to hit his 100th career home run. Pictured here is his card in the 2001 Topps Gallery set; several more cards appear below.
