BASEBALL - NEW YORK METS] A large archive of Mets autographs, jewelery and ephemera collected by an early team employee. Q... . Queens, New York: circa 1965-69. Includes autographs on photographs, baseballs, ephemera and cards, including duplicates of several notable players. Players include Tug McGraw, Ed Kranepool, Casey Stengle (several), Yogi Berra (several), Tom Seaver (several), Nolan Ryan, Jerry Koosman, Ron Swoboda, Don Drysdale, Whitey Ford, Willie Mays, Dick Selman, Gil Hodges, Bud Harrelson, Ralph Kiner, Ed Yost and others. Non-players include Howard Cosell, Lindsey Nelson and several Mets front office staff. Jewelery includes an engraved 10 karat gold Mets ring with a small diamond and two rubies featuring "Lady Met" (with a recent appraisal document from Balfour), a 10 karat gold Mets lady's watch by Girard-Perregaux, a group of 6 World Series and All-Star game lapel pins including the 1957 Indian pin and 1964 Shea Stadium pin. Ephemera includes Mets placemats, Christmas Cards, swizzle-sticks, press passes, a flannel Mets childs uniform, 2 miniature bats dated from the Mets Boosters Annual Dinner, 1 facsimile signed ball, and a teletape strip announcing Ron Swoboda's two inside the park homeruns during the Mets upset victory over the Yankees in the 1968 Mayor's Cup. Condition quite good overall, the signed baseballs with faded signatures although one Seaver signature quite bold, the scarce child's uniform in excellent condition. The archive offered here was collected by a young bookkeeper who worked for the Mets during their first few seasons. This assembly of early Mets ephemera is remarkable, and many of the players represented here would go on to win the World Series as part of the against-all-odds 1969 Miracle Mets squad and would eventually be admitted to the Baseball Hall of Fame (Ryan, Seaver, Mays, Berra, Stengel, etc).
