New York Mets: The Complete Illustrated History

This is a wonderful new hard-covered book that pays tribute to the New York Mets in a brilliant and Amazin’ way by celebrated Mets author and historian, Matthew Silverman.

The book covers the team from its formative years and never misses a beat as it brings to life the miracle of 1969 and the glory of 1986. No stone is left unturned as Silverman goes into the Players, Managers, Owners, Broadcasters and even a nostalgic look at much of the Memorabilia over our rich history.

Complemented by more than 300 photographs of players, game scenes, stadiums, fans, bobblehead dolls, programs, scorecards, and other assorted memorabilia, as well as an appendix of the New York Mets all-time records, New York Mets: The Complete Illustrated History, is the book every Mets fan will want to own.

The book is a true treasure and I encourage all of you to get a copy for yourself and relive all of the memorable moments of the first five decades of the Orange and Blue.
