As the Brigadier General of the Blue Cap Army, I thought I’d run this idea past you. I got a really great deal on an Authentic Cool Base White Pin jersey on EBay a couple of weeks ago and really can’t decide who to put on it. Here’s where Mets Police comes in: How about we let the Mets Police readership and loyal Blue Cap Army Soldiers pick who I put on it?!?
A couple of ground rules: 1) It has to be a player from the 2007 or 2008 teams (that’s when they started wearing Cool Base AND I WILL NOT put that Pizza Patch on anything that I wear) 2) If a player from ’07 AND ’08 roster, I’ll put on Shea Final Season patch (I have a few) 3) No coaches, and finally 4) It can’t be Oliver Perez, To-mas Glav-ine or Aaron Heilman! (no explanation should be necessary here)
Of course I’ll pay for it and get it “Authentic” customized (probably Stitches in Whitestone) and was thinking, you can come up with 5 or so players (your choice) of ranging abilities and service with the Mets, in those two seasons, (see Ground Rule #4) and maybe put up a poll on the website for a week or so, and let the BCA faithful decide!!
So, whatcha think??
P.S. I’ve attached pics of the blank jersey to attest to it’s authenticity
First the pics, then some thoughts…
I love this idea. Â It does have black dropshadow, so I worry about anachronisms. Â Mazzilli and Youngblood didn’t play in dropshadow…so that narrows the time frame.
Finch. I don’t think I’ve seen these. Â It’s also anÂ anachronism, but it’s a fictional character anyway.
Alfonzo. You really don’t see these.
Kiner 4. It makes no sense but I think it would be a cool cool move.
Hodges 14. I violated my anachronism rule but I’ve never seen one. Â Gil never wore his name either.
Hodges 42. I’d laugh. Â Wear it on April 15. Â I really am ignoring my own anachronism rule.
My ideas stink..what do you guys have?
