Celebrating the 1969 Mets World Series Win
Hey guys, this is Alan and I've been a lifelong New York Mets fan for as long as I could remember. One of my earliest memories from childhood is actually the 1969 World Series - I was seven years old at the time, but I can still remember watching the the final game 5 on my grandfather's television set. When the Mets beat the Orioles to clinch the World Series title. I still remember my uncle Bob shouting and dancing on the fire escape and celebration, and blowing his trumpet as loud as he could ( which I don't think he ever actually learned to play).
I created 1969mets.com as a tribute to my favorite baseball team in history, as well is the place to discuss my favorite collectibles and other vintage memorabilia from that unforgettable "amazin'" season. as a fan who's collecting a fair share of 1969 Mets memorabilia over the years, I have quite a bit of tips and other tidbits that I think might enjoy hearing. I'm also hoping to create a section on the site where other fans of the 1969 Mets team and share their stories and thoughts on that most remarkable season - sort of like a "What were you doing the moment the Mets won the World Series?" - it's amazing how many people of all walks of life have vivid memories associated with that historic win, not just the hard-core Mets fans.
when it comes to collectible memorabilia from the 1969 Mets season, especially the World Series run, I've got a couple of perennial favorites that I feel are not only great investments, they will be treasured keepsakes that have tremendous appeal and interest for Proudly displaying in your home or office. 1969 World Series memorabilia is generally the most valuable of its kind in the last 50 years. You have to go back to the mid-1950s New York Yankees Brooklyn Dodgers World Series events to start seeing valuations in market demand higher than the 1969 New York Mets-Baltimore Orioles matchup.
Before the Mets legendary 1969 season, they did not finish any prior above .500. Mets pitching ace Tom Seaver stunned the newly formed National League with 25 wins along with the Cy Young Award of his young career. The New York Mets logged 100 wins and went on to defeat the Atlanta Braves for the National League pennant. By the time the autumn classic came around, the Orioles, by statistical comparison overpowered and outmatched the Mets on just about every aspect. The Mets ended up shocking the Sports World by taking the World Series in only 5 games. Even baseball "non-fans" will never forget that legendary win. The one player who arguably made the most impact and helped turn the tide for the 1969 Mets was pitching ace Tom Seaver.
