As I have mentioned before, I have a 15 games Phillies pack because I'm a capitalist. I am therefore on their mailing list, and I just got an email with a title something like "discount for ticket holders." I opened it up to mick it, because that's what I would do if the Mets sent out something similar, but I was surprised at the offer:
As a Phillies season ticket holder, we are pleased to offer you an exclusive 20% discount for an exciting new publication, Phillies: An Extraordinary Tradition. We are currently accepting pre-orders for this book which will be released in May of 2010.
A brief description of the book is below:
Phillies: An Extraordinary Tradition is a celebration of over 125 years of Phillies baseball. This commemorative book provides a window through time, showcasing the Phillies' historic faces and places that comprise their legacy, including the team's origin and its founding father; Philadelphia's historic ballparks, from the classic Baker Bowl to the incomparable Citizens Bank Park; induction speeches of Phillies Hall of Famers; and the recent triumphs that established the Phillies as a perennial World Series contender. More than 400 photos and rare pieces of Phillies memorabilia, such as Harry Kalas's scorebook, the scouting report on Jimmy Rollins, and Greg Luzinski's first contract, provide a fascinating look inside the Phillies clubhouse.
This would be a cool idea for any franchises approaching the 50 season mark. The Phillies version is $50 in case you are curious. Main Mets Police page

If you are visiting The Mets Police for the first time, welcome.
This blog aims to be a little different. We're less likely to complain about a pitching change than we are likely to complain about what the pitcher was wearing.
We're about Mets history and tradition. We'd like to see a Seaver statue at Citi Field. We'd like the black uniforms to go away. We'd like the team to always treat the fans with respect.
We're just regular old Mets fans like you who have migrated from the uppers to the Promenade where we were saddened when we found plexiglass. Finally, for all our complaining we just want the franchise to win the World Series (while nicely dressed).
The site is updated several times a day, usually morning, noon, and night (cliche but true) with other items as they come in.
Mets Police in no way claims to be news nor accurate, including anything to which we link. It's just a blog. Read the blog and/or take our advice at your own risk.
We strongly encourage everyone to support the New York Mets and their business partners, just don't wear a black jersey while doing so.

I asked fans for a list of Mets traditions, and we didn't come up with many. How is Banner Day any harder to have than a Mr. Met Dash? Either way it's people walking on dirt. Click the pic for the list.

A collection of anecdotes related to Mets tickets, and my suggestion the Mets return 7 game packs and make Promenade Left the place to be. Click the pic.
