SHEA STADIUM SEAT BACK
 
 


My newest project is to attempt to have SNY's Top 50 N.Y. Mets sign my seat back. Names that are highlighted in orange have signed, while names highlighted in red are deceased.

As more signatures are added, I will update the picture. Here is a little more information on how SNY compiled their list...
 
 In conjunction with the Mets 50th Anniversary celebration, SNY selected and aired the definitive list of the '50 greatest Mets players' of all-time. 50 Greatest Mets -- presented by Citi -- is a 60-minute program that counts down the greatest players in club history, based on tabulated votes submitted by SNY's blue ribbon panel. Panel members include Mets play-by-play announcers Gary Cohen and Howie Rose, Hall-of-Famer and long-time Mets broadcaster Ralph Kiner, columnist John Harper of the New York Daily News, and Steve Hirdt, the Executive Vice President of the Elias Sports Bureau. Panel members judged players based solely upon their tenure with the Mets. The 50 Greatest Mets program is a collaboration with MLB Productions, featuring rare footage from MLB's vast library, and offering contemporary testimonials from current and former players, as well as numerous dignitaries of the game.
