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.

Very disappointed. I ordered a book for my grandson’s 5 birthday and had it sent directly to his home in another state. It never arrived! When I inquired they sent me an email from Linda in the United Kingdom with a screenshot of the tracking code stating that it was delivered. I’ve contacted the post office and it was delivered to another address and isn’t retrievable. I’ve called the company and asked for a call back and also sent additional emails without response. If you want something from this company, don’t have it shipped directly as a gift and don’t rely on customer service to address any issues. I’m out my money and a lot of time and have had to quickly find an alternative gift for my grandson’s fifth birthday. Very disappointing!!!

2 star rating could be better
The book design was good but there was a few problems the book was bent due to poor packaging maybe some bubble wrap or better packaging would be nice not just a cardboard envelope and there were finger prints on every page in the same place but other than that good design
