I just found this nifty little panel from an Old GI JOE comic circa late 1980’s early 1990’s.

Fine they changed the name from the Mets to the Mites but you can see the orange and blue racing stripes on Scarlett and company.

Thinking back on my comic book reading years, the Mets and Shea Stadium were in those books alot.

Found the pic on

Mets Alumni Association

I just received this e-mail from the Mets.

The Mets who are embracing their own history these days started up the Mets Alumni Association last week.

Click thumbnails to see larger size.

Its nice to see Rusty, Mookie, Bud (I have an autographed ball from him), Ed Kranepool, and Al Jackson at the ballpark.

The Alumni Association, The Mets, and Citi gave the first award for “Teammates in the Community”. They gave this to a volunteer of the Wounded Warrior Project.

In my opinion good job by The Mets in honoring the community and their history/former players.

I’ll add this part just for Shannon. I notice the person that was given the award is wearing a Cooperston Collection Seaver Jersey. No black drop shadow there..

Fast customer service from the Mets

On Monday, I posted how I was able to switch my ticket plan seats from their original location due to some issues beyond my control.

I happened to be working in Queens that day, near my house and Citi Field. When I talked to my ticket rep he asked me if I could send my unused tickets to him. I told him I was near the stadium and I could drop off the book in person.

My rep was totally cool with that. I dropped off the ticket book during lunchtime so I didn’t get to meet him in person, but I dropped it off with the front desk. The person at the desk told me that I should get my tickets within a week to 10 days.

Today I received my new tickets. I was shocked they came so quickly. I didn’t receive new book of tickets but box office printed loose tickets.

The cool thing though is that even though I didn’t get ticket book, they sent all the essential pages and cover that are in it.   That includes the rules, clubs, and the map.
