Through newspaper headlines printed at the time, you can revisit the most memorable events in New York Mets history.

  • A comprehensive newspaper history of the Mets from 1962 onwards
  • Embossed in gold and bound in a leatherette hardcover for free
  • Featuring in-depth articles as originally reported by the Washington Post
  • Each page features 12.5 x 15 inches of premium content
  • Rare New York Mets memorabilia

Relive all the greatest moments in Metropolitans baseball history with this personalized Mets gift: The New York Mets history book. Made from newspaper headlines of the time, and with coverage beginning in 1962, the year of the franchise’s debut season, this fine piece of New York Mets memorabilia guides you through the decades, revisiting all the key moments from Shea Stadium and Citi Field, right up until the present day.

Joining the Major Leagues in 1962, the New York Mets’ first seven seasons all ended with losing records. This run of mediocrity was the main contributing factor in the team’s new nickname during the 1969 season: the “Miracle Mets”. After a slow start, the Mets won 38 of their last 49 games to clinch the NL East Division, and then went on to sweep the much-favoured Atlanta Braves in the Championship Series. In the World Series, the Mets were underdogs again against the 109-53 Baltimore Orioles. Nevertheless, the Mets reigned victorious 4-1. The “Bad Guys” of the Mets would claim their second and latest World Series title in 1986, beating the Red Sox 4-3 after being within one strike of losing the entire season during Game 6.

Take a look at the contents to see which historic moments are captured.

How to Personalize Your Mets Gift

DONT DO BUILD A BEAR U ONLY THE BOOK!

DONT DO BUILD A BEAR U ONLY THE BOOK!! SCAM wasted 28 pound on this for my sons birthday very disappointed and angry. Would not recommend to anyone. Very arrogant on the phone when calling to ask about the item. And email reply wasn't any better. Save your money and either build a bear on the website or go elsewhere like etsy or not on the highstreet. If i could minuses stars I would as even 1 is to much

The book itself is absolutely beautiful and wonderfully illustrated. I couldn’t upload a photo onto the website, it kept sticking, so I ordered the book on a bank holiday Friday evening and it was confirmed at 2000h same night. I e mailed in the book with a photo attached the following morning Saturday at 0730h and asked if anything could possibly be done to attach it. I received a reply that it was too late, already in production, nothing could be done. In 12hrs ? I was really disappointed - I wish I had contacted CS before placing my original order. Also I assumed Alice would somehow be woven into the stories as advertised “in the books” other stories but The Ultimate Princess Collection does not offer this. Your child’s name appears on the top of each page but they are actually not IN the stories. If I ordered again I would be much more aware of what is actually on offer. In The Book does not mean IN every story, so read carefully before ordering as I’m sad to say I didn’t do.

A great cover and fronts piece.

A great cover and fronts piece. However, Some of the early pages were unreadable even with glasses and a magnifying glass in use. Some of the pages of the 1960s were unreadable as well, and one was even shown to be torn and disheveled as if lifted from a dustbin.

The child's name only appears on the opening page of each story. Other companies replace the name of the character in the story with the child's name. The format and quality of the book prints and presentation are good.

Very disappointed in this book for so much money - unfortunately I believed my granddaughter would appear in the story not just at the top of the pages - feel as if I’ve been conned!
