Just like the Red Sox set, here’s an extensive look at Mets games. You’ve got six discs jammed into a steelbook case so you’re not eating up shelf space. And apparently the fans voted on this one as well, so here’s the six games they decided were “essential” when it came to the Mets and Shea Stadium:
- 1969 World SeriesÂ® Game 4 vs. Baltimore Oriolesâ„¢ (10/15/69): Tom Seaver’s 10-inning win was a decisive point of the ’69 World Series as the Mets upset the heavily favored Orioles.
- 1986 National LeagueÂ® Championship Series Game 3 vs. Houston Astrosâ„¢ (10/11/86): This come-from-behind bottom-of-the-ninth victory ended with Lenny Dykstra’s famous walk-off home run.
- 1986 World Series Game 6 vs. Boston Red Soxâ„¢ (10/25/86): Considered “Baseball’s greatest game”, this improbable 10th-inning, miracle two-out comeback reached its climax with Mookie Wilson’s swing and… “here comes Knight and the Mets win it!”
- 1999 National League Championship Series Game 5 vs. Atlanta Bravesâ„¢ (10/17/99): Robin Ventura’s “grand slam single” won this 15-inning game endurance test.
- 2001 Regular season vs. Atlanta Braves (11/21/01): The emotionally charged first game in New York City after the 9/11 terrorist attacks was electrified by Mike Piazza’s 8th inning 2-run home run.
- 2006 Inter-League vs. New York Yankeesâ„¢ (5/19/06): David Wright’s walk-off hit snatched victory away from the cross-town rival Yankees in this classic see-saw battle.
Again, you’re looking at sixteen and a half hours of stuff, plus some bonus bits which I’ve included after the entry form. We have one copy here…want it? Then go for it–and do so once a day, friends.
