This image features the New York Mets, who never finished higher than ninth place in their first seven seasons. But they surprised everyone in 1969. Led by manager Gil Hodges and Cy Young Award winner Tom Seaver, the Mets won 38 of their last 49 games to overcome the Chicago Cubs' 9.5-game lead and win the division title. After sweeping the favored Atlanta Braves to grab the National League pennant, the Mets pulled an even bigger upset in the World Series, needing only five games to defeat the Baltimore Orioles, winners of 109 games during the regular season.

  • Photograph measures 8" x 10", with matting total measurement is 11" x 14"

  • Acid free matting
Player Biography
Sparky Anderson once said, “My idea of managing is giving the ball to Tom Seaver and then sitting down and watching him work.” Seaver, who served in the U.S. Marine Corps, pitched for the summer league Alaska Goldpanners and attended the University of Southern California before inking his first professional contract. Obtained by the New York Mets in a special draft lottery, “Tom Terrific” helped change the team from lovable losers into the “Miracle Mets” of 1969, when Seaver won his first of three National League Cy Young awards. He also earned the 1967 N.L. Rookie of the Year Award and garnered 12 All-Star selections.
