As an encore to their 40-120 debut season, the 1963 Mets were competing at a 29-45 clip before a 5-32 drought ensured another cellar finish. So while the Mets sophomore showing was a futile endeavor, this 1963 team-signed baseball is anything but! The absolutely gorgeous ONL Giles orb (grade “9-10”) showcases (20) blue ballpoint pennings that average (“8-9”) strength with highlights including: Cisco, Hickman, Hook, Hunt, A. Jackson, N. Sherry, Stallard, Stengel (manager, sweet spot). Full photo LOA from JSA. More on our website.
