1969 Mets – Nolan Ryan

 

The 1969 New York Mets defied odds when they had the first winning season in the Mets history and went on to take the World Series Championship title. With players like Nolan Ryan and Tom Seaver it is no wonder the Mets rose to grandeur in 1969.

Nolan Ryan, a hard throwing right-handed pitcher, has been involved in baseball his entire life. He is the principal owner, president and CEO of the Texas Rangers. In 1999, he was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. He was famous for his fastball- more than 100 miles per hour. He sustained this even after age 40.
Ryan was a 8 time MLB All-Star, with career strikeouts of 5,714.He still holds the records for no-hitter with seven games, one hitter games (12), and 18 two hitters. His career spanned four decades. An unique Nolan Ryan Game Used / Worn Jersey Houston Astros, which is authenticated, are available on eBay currently. Another collector’s item, the 1968 Topps Baseball Uncut Proof Sheet Framed Nolan Ryan's Rookie Card COA, a rare item, is on eBay. The prices of these items are very reasonable considering the rarity of them.

Due to illness and is committed service to the on the reserve, Nolan Ryan missed much of the 1967 Mets season. Due to the dual smoking aces up time Seaver and Jerry Koosman, Ryan got overshadowed in the 1968 season, unable to break into the starting rotation. Nolan Ryan became a reliable reliever going into the 1969 Mets season. Ryan had considerable success against the Braves in the National League championship series, where he threw seven innings of relief in game three, nailing his first playoff win. Nolan Ryan's most memorable performance with the 1969 miracle Mets came in game 3 of the World Series against the Baltimore Orioles. He pitched 2 1/3 shutout innings, which helped establish the Mets incredibly strong momentum, where they would go on to win the World Series game 5 with four consecutive wins.

Nolan Ryan memorabilia from the 1969 miracle Mets season is especially collectibles and noteworthy. Although Nolan Ryan went on to become perhaps one of the finest major league pitchers of the 20th century, his single appearance in the 1969 Mets game three of the World Series would be His only appearance in a World Series for the rest of his career.

Nolan Ryan started with the New York Mets in 1966 and went on to play for the California Angels, Houston Astros and Texas Rangers. Throughout that time he set many records and became a huge fan favorite. Finding memorabilia such as signed jerseys and gloves is not hard to do, but fans will pay for authentic Nolan Ryan collectibles. Everything from autographed paintings of Ryan to bronze statues are attainable. A mint condition rookie card, particularly an autographed one, is a worthwhile investment for any die hard fan. Autographed jerseys and magazine covers are great pieces. A rare find is a worn Nolan Ryan jersey from any of the teams he has played for over his 27-year career. Finding an uncut proof sheet containing Nolan Ryan's rookie card is exceptional and completes any collection. And the traditional autographed baseball, whether it is just Nolan Ryan's signature or the entire team's is quite nice. Other rare finds of Nolan's face include the 1973 Topps Candy Lids and What-A-Burger 3-D card sets. Sometimes a collector can find one of the rare "Farewell to a Legend" pennants used in a Texas Rangers farewell game. There are even limited edition plaques displaying autographed cards available.
