In 1969, after just seven years in existence, the New York Mets became the “Amazin’ Mets” and won the franchise’s first World Series championship by disposing of the A.L. Champion Baltimore Orioles in five games. Here is an original ticket stub from Game 4 of that memorable Fall Classic, a battle in which Mets ace Tom Seaver pitched a complete (10-inning) game. Seaver, pitching at home in front of 57,000 fans at Shea Stadium, scattered six hits and struck out six batters to earn a 2-1 decision on Oct. 15, 1969. The yellow and gray ticket, showing the Mets mascot “Mr. Met” in full windup, was for a field level box seat. The torn ticket shows fraying around the edges. The ticket’s total cost in 1969: $15. MLB Commissioner Bowie Kuhn’s facsimile signature appears in two places on the face of the ticket and once more on the back. A great piece of baseball history from a truly magical season.
