About this title


From the lens of George Kalinsky comes this photographic chronicle of the Mets, from the first team photo taken at the Polo Grounds to today's Shea Stadium. Packed with hundreds of full-color photographs, The New York Mets covers every moment of the Mets' history -- from the 1969 and 1986 World Series victories to the struggles of the late '70s and early '80s to today.Complementing the spectacular photography is an oral history of the team compiled by Sports Illustrated's Jon Scher. The words of the players, managers, coaches and others come alive in this wonderful, dramatic collection of exceptional photography.A must for every Mets fan, this book will be turned to fondly for many seasons to come.

From Library Journal:

The prolific Frommer (Shoeless Joe and Ragtime Baseball, LJ 2/1/92) tells of the Yankees, Giants, Dodgers, and Mets, as well as a host of forgotten teams. He doesn't unearth new material so much as make the gleaming by-roads of history come alive. New York area libraries should add this. Kalinsky has produced a beautiful photographic spread on the Mets from their origins in 1962 to the present. The photos are mostly color, and the team's key figures are depicted. For regional libraries.
