Amongst the pieces on display are...


This tribute to the 1969 New York Mets does nothing less than evoke wonderful memories of that special year when everything was going the New York sports fan's way. In Football, Joe Namath and his Jets accomplished the impossible when they defeated the mighty Colts of Baltimore to win Super Bowl III. In basketball, Willis Reed and Walt Frazier were leading their Knicks on to the NBA Championship. In baseball, glorious baseball, Tom Seaver and a bunch of guys nobody had ever heard of, like a wild young pitcher named Nolan Ryan, first vanquished the Chicago Cubs to win the National League Division, then defeated Henry Aaron and the Atlanta Braves to win the National League pennant and then dismantled the powerful machine that was the Baltimore Orioles to win the World Series. What a year if you were a New York fan!

Displayed on a field of blue measuring 40 x 39 inches you will first find the focal point of this montage, an original 1969 (Mets version) World Series Program, signed on the cover by 29 members of that Amazin' team. Flanking the program are two photos depicting the utter pandemonium that occurred at the moment the Mets became the World Champion Mets.

Under these artifacts are all 5 tickets from the 1969 World Series, a series where the heavily favored Orioles managed to win but a single game. Below the tickets is a pennant from the very beginning of the Mets, which serves as a reminder that the Mets were only in their 8th season as a professional baseball team when they rambled to the pinnacle of the sport.

Set under the pennant is a 1969 Mets team photo, and an engraved plaque detailing the unlikely and all but impossible, yet true ending to the fairy tale story that was the 1969 Mets





This tribute pays homage to Roger Marisí breaking the great Babe Ruthís single season Home Run record with 61 in 1961. The lower half completes this historical montage, as it contains the signatures of the 44 pitchers who fell victim to the Home Run power of Roger Maris in 1961.




The 1951 season ended with the Brooklyn Dodgers and the NY Giants tied for first place. As a result, a three game playoff was played to determine who would join the New York Yankees in the World Series. After the Dodgers and Giants split the first two games, Bobby Thomson in the bottom of the ninth of the decisive third game connected on Ralph Branca's second pitch for a Home Run which sent the New York Giants to the 1951 World Series. This display (shown above) commemorates the SHOT HEARD ROUND THE WORLD with an actual ticket stub from that historical game.




This tribute to Micky Mantle and his World Series home run record, which still stands to this day. A signed photos of Mantle is surrounded by actual game tickets for each World Series game in which he hit a home run. Mantle appeared in 12 World Series, his team winning 7 of them. He holds the records for most World Series home runs (18), RBIs (40), runs (42), walks (43), extra-base hits (26), and total bases (123).




This historic display commemorates the accomplishments of four pitchers who, on baseballís biggest stage struck out more batters then any previous pitcher. In the first game of the 1929 World Series a talented pitcher for the Philadelphia Aís named Howard Ehmke took the mound and proceeded to STRIKE OUT 13 Chicago Cubs to become the sole record holder of this coveted milestone. This record stood for 24 years until the third game of the 1953 World Series, when Carl Erskine of the Brooklyn Dodgers, facing the mighty New York Yankees, STRUCK OUT 14 Bronx Bombers in route to a 3-2 Dodger victory. Ten years later, another Dodger great, Sandy Koufax, would mow down 15 Yankees in game 1 of the 1963 Fall Classic, as the Dodgers went on to a 4 game sweep of the Yankees.. Koufaxís record would stand for 5 seasons, until Bob Gibson of the St. Louis Cardinals recorded 17 STRKE OUTS against the Detroit Tigers in 1968. This record remains one of Baseballís greatest individual accomplishments. This tribute is graced with signed photos of all four of the pitchers named--the latter three all have plaques at Cooperstown-- as well as the actual ticket to each of the 4 games detailed above.
