Vintage baseball part #1 - Retro Mets

Although they have not really been around that long, the Mets have a bunch of great vintage baseball designs.

The Mets came about as consolation prize to the poor Brookliyn Dodger fans that were left in NY with broken hearts. Established in 1962 as one of baseball's first expansion teams the fill the hole left when both the Dodgers and Giants were transplanted to the west coast. The new team took as its primary colors the blue of the Dodgers and the orange of the Giants, and took their name from the original 19th Century New York Metropolitans club.
