Vintage Mets: 1969 Was A Very Good Year

Here’s a video that recently popped up, and when I saw it I just knew I had to share it with you. It’s the late Lindsey Nelson trying, but not really succeeding, to interview the Mets in the locker room just after they won the 1969 World Series against the Orioles.

It’s a real trip watching these guys… I love those original uniforms and it really makes me wish the Mets would stop playing games and just stick with these original beauties.

The video features Tom Seaver, Donn Cledennon, Buddy Harrelson, Jerry Koosman, Jerry Grote and even the original Mets owner, Mr. Charles Payson who was celebrating his birthday that day. 

It’s a lot of fun, enjoy it….
