1969 New York Mets – Daily News

31 Mar

Managed by Gil Hodges in their 8th season in existence, the New York Mets finished 100-62. The Mets swept the Atlanta Braves in the first National League Championship Series for the first NL Pennant. New York was defeated by the Baltimore Orioles in the World Series.

Photo depicts father and son off to see the Mets at Shea Stadium. Back cover headline reads, “Oh Shea, Go-Go Mets”. Pictures show Tom Seaver, Tommy Agee and Mets Manager Gil Hodges with his staff. Newspaper is complete in beautiful condition for age.
