TOM SEAVER RUMORS & GOSSIP

Mets Card of the Week: 1972 Tom Seaver

1972 METS FANTASY CARD TOM SEAVER There are few things in the world that make me happier than Topps baseball cards from the 1960s and 1970s. They don’t try to be anything more than what they actually are. The simple is what makes them great. A fantasy of mine is to go back in time to open a pack of these cards once more. But no matter how much we sometimes wish, it’ll never...

June 15, 1977: A Day That Will Live In Mets Infamy

There are certain dates in our nation’s history when Americans remember exactly where they were and what they were doing. One day that stands out for Mets fans is June 15, 1977. That is a day in our history which will live in infamy.

Tom Seaver, Yusmeiro Petit, Hunter Strickland and Deception

“Tom Seaver, he had the whole package. Power, deception, command, everything,” said Giants pitching coach Dave Righetti last week before FanFest. We’d been talking about tipping pitches, and deception, but any time you hear about an icon in the same sentence as Yusmeiro Petit, you put down your recording device and start looking at some […]

Mets Card of the Week: Topps Candy Lids Tom Seaver

TOPPS CANDY LIDS TOM SEAVER This week we bring you the Mets360 North American Field Guide for Identifying Topps Candy/Gum Lid Reverses. This project is within the remit of the site because each of the three lids produced by Topps in the early ’70s featured a small, floating-head image of our own Tom Seaver.

Opinion: Where’s Our Tom Seaver Statue?

In an interview on Friday morning with Boomer and Carton on WFAN, Tom Seaver said that the Mets have never approached him about erecting a statue or monument in his honor at Citi Field. “I understand that I’m a part of the history of the game of baseball, it is going to be what it is,” Seaver said, when asked about his legacy. “The wonderful thing are the memories that I...

What Ernie Bowman taught Tom Seaver

I picked up a 1966 Topps Ernie Bowman baseball card last week. This is an interesting card in its own right because Bowman never actually played a game for the New York Mets. In 1966, Bowman played for their minor league affiliate, the Jacksonville Suns. What also makes Bowman particularly interesting is because of how he fits into the team’s history. What makes the Jacksonville...
