The 'When the Doctor took the Big Apple by storm' quiz

On this day in 1984, 19-year-old Mets phenom Dwight Gooden recorded his 200th strikeout of the season.

She feels that Citi Field should have a statue that honors her husband, as well as the team’s other legends. “I’m embarrassed for (the Mets). I really am,” Nancy said, per Eric Barrow and...

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 have about...

Mets Card of the Week: 2010 Tom Seaver

2010 TOPPS NATIONAL CHICLE TOM SEAVER If you’re anything like me, you’ve long imagined a world in which Tom Seaver was a malevolent force of pure evil. It is a world where Jim Qualls was savagely eviscerated on July 10, 1969. A dark realm where a disemboweled Leron Lee was discovered on July 5, 1972. A benighted land where M. Donald Grant’s severed head was found adorning a pike...

Today in Mets History: Always Terrific, Seaver Was Nearly Perfect

SEAVER: Almost perfect on this day. It is possible this game in 1969 is most remembered from that amazing season. On this date in 1969, and maybe each day since for Tom Seaver, he’ll remember Jimmy Qualls’ sinking single into the left-center gap with one out in the eighth inning to break up his perfect game bid and forced him to settle for one-hit, 4-0 shutout. It was one of 31...

Mets Card of the Week: 1970 Tom Seaver box

1970 TOPPS TOM SEAVER CELLO BOX The dominant pack configuration for Topps baseball cards throughout the ’50s and ’60s was the 5-cent wax pack: five cards and a stick of gum for your hard-earned nickel. Topps also offered less-common 1-cent wax packs through until the mid ’60s– these change-makers gave you gum and one card for a penny. In addition, the company issued various iterations...
