The New York Mets began in 1962 as one of the worst teams professional baseball had ever seen, yet they quickly captured the hearts and minds of millions of fans eager to cheer on this band of misfits led by the incomparable Casey Stengel. The team’s second quarter century did not bring any more championships, but fans continued to support their beloved Mets in record numbers, from Shea Stadium to Citi Field. This fully illustrated celebration of Mets baseball takes you season by season from the earliest days of the franchise to today.

The first native New Yorkers were the Lenape, an Algonquin people who hunted, fished and farmed in the area between the Delaware and Hudson rivers. That year, the Dutch West India Company sent some 30 families to live and work in a tiny settlement on Nutten Island (today’s Governors Island) that they called New Amsterdam.

The New York Mets, who had never finished higher than ninth place (next-to-last) nor won more than 73 games in a season since joining the National League in 1962, were not highly regarded before the 1969 season started. In fact, the best that could be said for them was that because the National League was being split into two divisions that year (as was the American League), the Mets were guaranteed to finish no lower than sixth place. The fact that the Mets began the season by losing 11–10 to the then-expansion Montreal Expos seemed to confirm this.
