Citi Field Tribute: We Remember Gary Carter 1954 – 2012
A beautiful and fitting tribute by the New York Mets at Citi Field.
Here at Mets Merized Online, we’ll pay tribute to Gary Carter for “8″ days – with thoughts and well wishes from both our readers and writers. We invite you to share your thoughts, old photos, collectibles, or anything you deem fitting.
We’ll also be highlighting some of the most remarkable achievements in the life of Gary Carter the baseball player, and Gary Carter the family man who was a lifelong advocate for all children.
We will be donating $2 from the sale of every RETIRE 8 t-shirt to the Gary Carter Foundation. We are also pleased to announce that one of our sponsors will match all the money we have raised for Gary’s foundation up until July 31, 2012.
We will send the Gary Carter Foundation a check for the total amount raised postmarked on 8/8.
* We lowered our regular prices on our Retire 8 buttons and t-shirts to make them much less than the rest of our offerings. Basically our cost plus the $2.00 margin which we will donate.

I'm a lifelong Mets fan who loves writing and talking about the Amazins' 24/7. From the Miracle in 1969 to the magic of 1986, and even the near misses in '73 and '00, I've experienced it all - the highs and the lows. I started Mets Merized Online in 2005 to feed my addiction.
