TOM SEAVER RUMORS & GOSSIP

Third time's a charm: Tom Seaver, Dwight Gooden - and Matt Harvey?

The Mets' 11-game winning streak has brought up memories of two other seasons in which they had such a streak - 1969 and 1986.  But it's still hard to compare the 2015 Mets with the legends of the past.  The Mets' 13-3 record ties the '86 Mets for the best Mets start ever.  But when the '86 Mets beat Atlanta on April 30, 1986 to reach 13-3, here was their lineup, along with their...

MMO Feature: Tom Seaver’s 19 Strikeout Classic Turns 45

On this day in Mets history, 45 years ago, Hall of Famer Tom Seaver tossed his 19-strikeout gem against the San Diego Padres and set the major league record with 10 straight strikeouts to end the game. It happened on April 22, 1970 and our own Stephen Hanks was there. Here is an article he wrote back in 2010 to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of one of the greatest moments in Mets...

MMO Hall of Fame: Left Fielder Cleon Jones Was Always At Center Of Things

When he removed his Mets uniform for the final time he was our all-time leader in hits, runs, RBI’s, doubles and 2nd in batting average. There was no fanfare, no celebration of his achievements, no day honoring his accomplishments after a decade of playing in New York.  Instead, he lumbered away, head down, disgraced, a beaten man. He’s one of very few Mets who can call himself...

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: 1968 Tom Seaver

1968 TOPPS TOM SEAVER Tom Seaver shared his 1967 Topps rookie card with Bill Denehy. Of course, Seaver won the Rookie of the Year award that season, earning himself the privilege of not just a stand-alone card in 1968, but also one numbered with the coveted divisor of 5 (45), and adorned with the all-star rookie trophy. In the portrait photograph selected for his 1968 card, Seaver...

Tom Seaver and the Alaska Goldpanners

I picked up a 1971 copy of this book written by George Sullivan and published by G. P. Putnam’s Sons at auction a couple of weeks ago. The book is geared towards young adults and is part of a series of biographies written on America’s baseball heroes. Some other athletes in the series are Willie Mays (“Coast to Coast Giant”), Juan Marichal (“Mr. Strike”), and Stan...

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. The first Topps Candy Lids were issued in 1970, and served as the covering...

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...
