Pictures of Mets Opening Day 1973

Mike sent these over.  Very cool.  Click on them for bigger versions.

For those of you who like to rag on the Mets for attendance woes, assuming these are indeed of the opener (why would Mike lie) that’s what 27,326 looked like as Seaver bested Carlton in a tidy one hour and 56 minutes.

It’s always weird for me to see pics of Shea with the original seats and color scheme.   Mets Police 1980 probably complained about getting rid of the traditional green upper deck.  I’ll check the archives.

Pics always very welcome at   Nothing is too small or too random, especially if it is from before 1990.

Hey Osh41, did we just not take any pictures all those years?  Dopes.Bored with Sports Talk Radio? Try Alternative Sports Talk via TuneIn
