Four members of the New York Mets Hall of Fame are scheduled to sign autographs at MAB Celebrity Services’ “That ’90s Show” on Sunday, October 26th. The weekend event, which begins on Saturday, October 25th, will be held at the Hilton Hasbrouck Heights-Meadowlands.
The former Mets stars are Jerry Koosman (autographs are $39), Cleon Jones ($20), Bud Harrelson ($20) and Ed Kranepool ($18). Fans desiring autographs from all of the ex-Mets players can purchase a super ticket for $69.
The main focus will be a mini-reunion of 1994 New York Rangers hockey players on Saturday, along with a scheduled appearance by Hulk Hogan and several other pro wrestlers. Sunday’s slate of guests includes the ex-Mets as well as a couple of baseball Hall of Famers: Jim Palmer and Rollie Fingers.
I’m just about out of old baseball cards to show you from the group I picked up at last Sunday’s Rahway baseball card show, but here are three additions to my 1971 Topps Mets team set. This is my least favorite set of the decade because the black borders really highlight every possible imperfection.
And we’re another day closer to the start of spring training – just 36 days left until the New York Mets pitchers and catchers officially report to Port St. Lucie. (Would you believe that Jerry Koosman is the only really memorable Mets player to wear #36?)
But for a change, I’m more interested in a different sport today: I want to see how the New York Giants will fare against the Green Bay Packers this afternoon. I’m hoping for another pleasant surprise.
