This is a circa 72-73 Mets road jersey - Shannon and I dreamed of the day the Mets would reintroduce these jerseys, we would watch 1973 World Series films during rain delays and call each other to discuss how cool the road jerseys looked and hoped they'd make a return.
The Mets introduced polyester jerseys in 72 and got rid of the classic 'New York' lettering beginning in 1974 so this specific jersey existed for only 2 years.
Mets road jerseys did not display 'New York' from 1974 through 1986. In 1987 New York returned to the road uni's in the form of the script New York (we'll talk about them in future posts)
