    Question Pretty awesome find...one of a kind

    Went to my grandmas apartment to take care of her cat while she was out and went looking through some of my dads old cabinets.I found at least 40 Programs and yearbooks dating all the way back to 1967.He had the program and yearbook from the 1969 Miracle Mets,he had a ton of old sports illustrated issues,funny reading about these "phenoms" that didn't pan out.I found old price guides with articles written by Kieth Olbermann...the most interesting being about a fake variation to the t206 honus wagner.Well I also found this beautiful piece.The signatures are in great condition.Anyone have an idea on the year...im guessing 1969-1970

    well heres my new favorite item in my Mets collection.

    Very cool! I always liked Ron Swoboda, probably because of the cool "baseball player" sound of his name.

    So you waited until Granny was out of town and then you went snooping thru her things.

    Man this is wrong on so many levels.

    That is an incredible piece of Mets history! I went to a signing by Cleon Jones, Tommie Agee & Ron Swoboda in downtown NYC in 1969. My mother worked for Manufacturer's Hanover Trust (bank) and took me with her to work that day so we could get the outfielders autographs. I wish I knew where they were now, oh well, great memories and congratulations on your find!!

    Why would he want something his father got cut up when he could just get it framed?

    If I was a Mets fan I would be begging you to sell/trade it to me. I love random memorabilia like that.

    Yeah, but its something your father would have gotten 40 years ago. Sure, it looks a bit worse for wear, but you could easily frame that and hang it up.
