TOM SEAVER RUMORS & GOSSIP

Amazin’ Memories: Steve Henderson Delivered Some Thrills for the Mets

Steve Henderson came to the Mets with the burden of being one of the key players coming over from the Reds in the 1977 Tom Seaver trade. In addition, since the Mets had just traded Dave Kingman to San Diego, Henderson was expected to eventually replace him in the middle of the Mets’ lineup. This was an awful lot of pressure for a kid who had never spent a day in the major leagues...

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...

An Odd Yet Perfect Matchup

They are as comfortable together as you and your old Met sweatshirt. Ordinary, familiar, maybe a bit faded, frayed, and worn, like a battered ball tucked in a worn-out glove. It’s like they were made to go together, one somehow not complete without the other. Cold ice cream and hot fudge. They met forty years ago and became fast friends, a friendship steeled over time, immune to...
