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.
