A discussion has started. Did Rusty Staub ever wear this uniform? I was ready to wink and nod and pretend its a 1975 road jersey but it’s too white for that.
Once again this would be part of my fantasy job with the Mets where they just run everything thru my office. I don’t actually want a job with the Mets but I like to pretend the Bobblehead guys come in and I point stuff like this out.
Update Wednesday morning: some folks are trying to convince me this is a 1975 road jersey and that the lighting is bad.
I guess we will see on Saturday but I find it hard to imagine that there was a concerted effort to honor the 1970′s with a 1975 road jersey (Rusty wore 10 in 1975′ 4 previously with the Mets, and 10 in the 80′s). Then once they did they were victims of bad lighting.
But hey we’ll see, and I love these discussion.
Now do I really care? Well I like things to be accurate, but it’s not like I kick my dog over a bobble head. I was pretty fired up about Lady Met but there were a few open beer bottles nest to the laptop last night.
Man this stuff is fun.
