Description

The year was 1962 and expansion brought a new team to the great city of New York. These Mets had a tough season, finishing with a record of (40-120), which dating back to 1935, is the worst winning percentage any team has endured. These Mets went into their third home series of the year still seeking their first-ever home victory at Flushing Meadows Stadium, otherwise known as the Polo Grounds V. The Phillies came to town for a four-game set on April 27-29, 1961, and in the second game of the series the Mets broke out of their shells, handing the Phillies an 8-6 loss in the second game en-route to their first ever home victory. A program from this monumental series is likely the highlight of this lot, as it remains in superior EX-MT/NM condition, exhibiting only a touch of corner wear. Like the remaining three programs in the lot, the scorecard remains unscored and well bound, as are all the other pages. The “Miracle Mets” are also represented, as the lot features a 1969 NLCS Shea Stadium program and a 1969 World Series Shea Stadium program grading NM and EX-MT respectively. Squaring out the lot is a 1973 World Series Shea Stadium program grading EX-MT/NM. Simply an Amazing Mets collection ready to illuminate any New York showcase.
