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
To truly make this Mets book a timeless gift, you can include the individual’s name and a message printed on a certificate on the opening title page. Their name will also be embossed on the front cover free of charge. The hardback cover is bound in premium leatherette.
Check your personalization: accents and other symbols cannot be used unless otherwise stated.
In The Book wouldn’t be here without its terrific customers. That’s why we care about what you have to say.

From finding the book you were looking for to how easy your chosen book was to personalise – every little detail is important, so we can perfect your shopping experience the next time you return!
Book itself is great but is only suitable for white little boys which seems unfair. all well and good personalising the name but if your child is of a different race or gender to the illustration, the book is pointless. Feels like this needs to be made clearer on the website.
Customer services not very understanding and slow at responding.

I ordered a newspaper for my Dad’s 80th birthday - he was born on 7th January 1940.
When he opened the paper it was 8th January and also a Glasgow Herald which would be great for someone who lived in this area but not for someone who doesn’t.
I emailed the day after his birthday 8th January to enquire why this was and apart from an automatic reply to say I would be contacted, have heard nothing. Needless to say I am disappointed with the customer service I have received.

Book did not arrive when was advised of delivery timeframe. I sent email asking which courier would be delivering as was sent tracking number that did not link to any courier service or say who it would be to track! Response came 2 weeks later after book was delivered apologising for late response but she stated that it was fine because the book had been delivered!!! Shocking service, will not use the company again.

Well worth buying
The book was larger than I was led to believe. I thought I ordered A4 but it was slightly smaller than A3. It could have been my mistake. It was my understanding that it was going to contain reports about my team (Plymouth Argyle). What I found was there was also reports of different games that took place on the same day. It also included reports on rugby and cricket. They scanned the full page. I was disappointed at first, however, after reading part of the book I'm finding it very interesting. If you are a football fan and like reading other reports, then you will enjoy this book.

Have not received book yet
Have not received book yet. Original purchase said book would be dispatched 1/13 and delivery 1/15-1/17 . I called and questioned the time frame because I was willing to pay to expedite . They assured the dispatch date is not right because of their software but the shipping is correct. Still do not have it on 1/20 and will not have it in time for my Mom. They answer the phone in the UK with a NY number so ship from location is deceiving. They ship USPS partner which is slower and tracking is horrible. I had to call for tracking number, they do not update you. Customer Service is only open 8-noon ET. Really upset about this
