New York Mets Memorabilia

New York Mets

New York City, the largest city in the U.S. gained entrance into the National League™ in 1962 when the New York Mets™ were born and played their first of two seasons in the Polo Grounds. The 2012 season marks the 50th anniversary of a team that has been known as everything from lovable losers to World Series™ champions. The Mets™ and losing were synonymous during the franchise's first seven years, during which they dropped 100-plus games five times. One “victory” stands out during this era, however. The Mets won a special lottery for the rights to USC pitcher and future Hall of Famer Tom Seaver in 1966; three years later, they were World Series champions. Among the heroes were World Series MVP Donn Clendenon and pitcher Jerry Koosman. Returning to postseason play in 1973, New York captured the East Division crown before edging the Cincinnati Reds™ 3-2 in an NLCS™ in which Rusty Staub hit all three of the Mets' homers. Staub (.423, 6 RBI) excelled again in the World Series championship, but the Mets fell 4-3 to the Oakland A's™. Following a dry spell, the Mets returned with a vengeance in 1986. Winning 108 regular-season games – thanks to Darryl Strawberry, Keith Hernandez, Gary Carter, Mookie Wilson, Bobby Ojeda and others – they knocked off the Houston Astros™ 4-2 in the NLCS. The Boston Red Sox™ seemingly had control in Game 6 of the World Series, but the Mets pulled off an amazing comeback, then won Game 7 and their second World Series title. Ray Knight took home World Series MVP honors with a .391 average and five RBI. The Mets claimed the East Division title in 1988 and earned Wild Card berths in 1999 and 2000, falling in the 2000 World Series to the New York Yankees™. Posting the best Senior Circuit record in 2006, the Mets were edged in a seven-game NLCS by the St. Louis Cardinals™. The Mets finished second in the East in both 2007 and 2008, and moved into in 2009. Mets fans are hoping for a return to the glory days in 2012.

Los Angeles Dodgers

Whether based on the East Coast or the West Coast, the Dodgers have been one of the most successful teams in baseball history. On 24 occasions, the Dodgers have qualified for the postseason, and their 20th century win total was third behind only the New York Yankees and New York/San Francisco Giants.The Bridegrooms, as they were then known, won their first National League pennant in 1890.  Now called the Superbas and featuring stars such as Hughie Jennings, Joe Kelly and Willie Keeler, the club claimed another pair of pennants in 1899 and 1900. The team name was changed to the Dodgers and a move to Ebbets Field occurred in 1913. Jack Pfeffer won 25 games in 1916 while Burleigh Brimes posted 23 wins in 1920, but the Robins (another name change) lost the World Series both years.  Brooklyn captured an N.L. flag in 1941 with Dolf Camilli belting 34 homers and driving in 120 runs, Pete Reiser leading the league in batting (.343), and Kirby Higbe and Whit Wyatt winning 22 games each.  But the first in a parade of Fall Classic losses to the Yankees followed. Breaking the color barrier in 1947 was Jackie Robinson, followed by the Dodgers winning six pennants and a World Series over the next 10 years. Pitcher Don Newcombe, outfielder Duke Snider and first baseman Gil Hodges were among the many heroes in this golden era.  In 1955, Roy Campanella corralled his third Most Valuable Player award and the Dodgers finally knocked off the Yankees in the World Series. A move to the West Coast in 1958 was followed the next season by the Dodgers garnering the pennant and defeating the Chicago White Sox in the World Series.  Sandy Koufax won 25 games in 1963 and starred in a World Series sweep of the Yankees, then combined with Don Drysdale to win 49 games and another Fall Classic in 1965. In 1988, Orel Hershiser won 23 games and pitched 59 consecutive scoreless innings on the way to a World Series conquest of Oakland. The turning point in this series was Kirk Gibson's dramatic pinch-hit homer to win Game 1. Thrilling the Los Angeles faithful over the next couple of decades were Hideo Nomo, Mike Piazza, Kevin Brown, Gary Sheffield and Shawn Green. Eric Gagne saved 55 games in 2003 to earn the Cy Young Award, and in 2006 the Dodgers claimed a Wild Card berth for their 24th postseason appearance.

From the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s, there were few teams better than the Philadelphia Phillies.

From the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s, there were few teams better than the Philadelphia Phillies. Perennial winners of the National League East Division, the Phillies captured two pennants and earned a World Series title during that span. Organized in 1883, the Phillies fielded some incredible talent during the late 1800s, including future Hall of Fame outfielders Ed Delahanty, Billy Hamilton and Sam Thompson. Pitcher Grover Cleveland Alexander posted 31 wins and crafted a 1.22 ERA in 1915 as the Phillies grabbed their first N.L. flag.  Right fielder Gavvy Cravath claimed home run and RBI titles that season. Alexander came back with 33 wins in 1916 and they finished second two years running.  The club fell on hard times for the next several decades, despite the stellar play of Chuck Klein, Lefty O'Doul and Cy Williams.  Following five consecutive last-place finishes (1938-42), a successful rebuilding program featured stars Del Ennis, Richie Ashburn and Robin Roberts. Finally in 1950, the Whiz Kids outlasted Brooklyn for the pennant on the last-game heroics of Dick Sisler and Ashburn before being swept by the New York Yankees in the World Series. With Steve Carlton mowing down hitters and Mike Schmidt and Greg Luzinski providing the power, the Phillies began their greatest era with an East Division crown in 1976. The club also corralled division titles in 1977, 1978 and 1980, finally winning the NLCS over Houston in '80 and bouncing Kansas City in a six-game World Series. Among the heroes on this title team were senior circuit MVP Schmidt (48 homers, 121 RBI) and Cy Young Award winner Carlton (24 wins). Pitcher Curt Schilling reached the 300-strikeout plateau in both 1997 and '98, the club improved by 21 games from 2000 to 2001, and players including Pat Burrell, Bobby Abreu and Jim Thome kept the Phils in contention. After narrowly missing a Wild Card berth the past two seasons, the Phillies are anxious for a return to the postseason.

St. Louis Cardinals

With 18 Pennants and eleven World Series Championships to their credit, the St. Louis Cardinals are the greatest team in National League history.  Many of baseball's most talented players and interesting characters have worn Cardinals™ uniforms, and their on-field performances and off-field exploits have kept St. Louis fans entertained through the decades. The team that would eventually be known as the Cardinals was organized in 1881.  The following year, this Brown Stockings ballclub (also known as the Browns) became a charter member of the American Association.  Among the squad's early stars were first baseman Charlie Comiskey, third baseman Arlie Latham and pitchers Jumbo McGinnis and Tony Mullane. By 1885, the Browns were clearly the class of the American Association, thanks to players such as outfielder Tip O'Neill and pitchers "Parisian Bob" Caruthers and Dave Foutz.  St. Louis won four consecutive league titles (1885-88), tied the Chicago White Stockings in the 1885 World Series and defeated the White Stockings in the 1886 World Series. Now known as the Cardinals, the team joined the National League in 1892. Following years of dominance by Rogers Hornsby, Jim Bottomley led the Cardinals to senior circuit Pennants in 1926 and 1928, with the '26 squad claiming the World Series Championship.  Chick Hafey, Frankie Frisch and Bill Hallahan guided the Cardinals to Pennants in 1930 and '31, and a Fall Classic triumph the latter year.  Dubbed the "Gashouse Gang" for their unruly behavior and daring play, the 1934 Cardinals featuring Pepper Martin, Joe "Ducky" Medwick, Rip Collins and Dizzy Dean captured another World Series title. The Cardinals won four Pennants and three World Series in a five-year span during the 1940s with stars such as Stan Musial and Enos Slaughter, then earned three Pennants and two Fall Classics in the 1960s with standouts including Bob Gibson and Lou Brock. Ozzie Smith and Willie McGee led the way to a ninth World Championship in 1982, while Albert Pujols and Chris Carpenter helped secure two more crowns in 2006 and 2011.
