The inaugural Mets-Rockies program from Opening Day 1993

From the 1993 opener.  This is my copy of the program I wrote about in my eBook.

Dave Magadan of the Marlins wonders how he wound up in this book, but he did. Why the Mets got rid of him I don’t understand.

Meanwhile, don’t you kind of miss this seating chart?

Remember when you could advertise like this?

Jack Lang says Shea is just as awesome as it was in 1964.  Right.

I guess photoshop wasn’t perfected in 1993.  What is going on here???

Dave Magadan probably also wonders how they managed to flip his picture and print it backwards. I guess the backwards NY on his jacket and the backwards Mets logo over his shoulder weren't enough clues for the proof-readers.

I remember how, even though the programs sold out quickly, they still kept flashing the "Now is a good time to buy your scorecard for today's game" message on the scoreboard. Somewhere in my archives I've got a picture of that message, with the scoreboard clock indicating the time was 12.30pm - and the scorecards were long, long gone by then!
