MLB Vintage World Series Films - New York Mets 1969 & 1986 DVD Tom Seaver Gary Carter Darryl Strawberry
The World Series champion Mets of 1969 and 1986 were embraced by fans for their pitching, personalities, and perseverance. In 1969, the world was mesmerized by man's first steps on the moon. The world of baseball was equally transfixed by the Mets. New York relied on pitching from Tom Seaver and Jerry Koosman, and the hitting of Tommie Agee and Cleon Jones to register the Club's first 100-win season. The 1969 World Series matched the Miracle Mets against the Baltimore Orioles. The defense of Ron Swoboda and Agee, as well as dominant pitching and timely hitting, led the Mets to their first World Series title. It took the 1986 Mets two games to recover from a grueling NLCS, and then the fiery Lenny Dykstra led the charge. With two road victories pushing the Fall Classic back to Shea Stadium, the stage was set for Game Six--and arguably the most remarkable comeback in baseball history, a victory sealed when Mookie Wilson's grounder to first went past Bill Buckner allowing Ray Knight to score the winning run. In Game Seven, the Mets again staged another comeback to capture their second crown. Used. One DVD.
