Default Season Pass - 69 Mets - Which pass would you choose?

Nice run of bad weather left me with some time to look through (too much!) stuff, and I found some old Mets items I had tucked away. One of them was this neat 1969 Mets season pass, which got me thinking. If you could wrangle a season pass and jump in Doc Brown's DeLorean to take advantage of it, which pass would you like to get to be able to watch a full single home season? As a Mets fan, this one would probably be tops on my list, but I was thinking maybe a 1947 Dodgers to watch history unfold would be right up there. Maybe a Yankees season pass to watch the Mantle/Maris home run race in 1961 would be fun. Maybe the 1927 Yankees? 1941 Yankees to see Joltin' Joe's streak, and a few visits from Teddy Ballgame on his way to a .400 season? Anybody want to weigh in with a choice, or have a nice picture of a cool season pass to share?

Happy collecting!

I would probably go see one of the most significant games in baseball history the opening match of the 1869 Cincinnati red stockings

Neat Pass Marty Something interesting I see is that it says To all championship games. Maybe it was just a pass to those games as I have never seen a Mets season pass before.. Also if you google John Redican N.Y. looks to still be alive about 80 years old. Might be a great story there.... Enjoy it..

I never thought about a season like the 1869 Cincinnati season I am guessing it would look very little like the baseball we know, but it would be pretty cool!

Hey Al, I thought the same when I first got it, that it was for the NLCS, but I believe it refers to all Mets home games that contribute to determining the National League championship, including regular season. I have seen other Mets passes from other years before the NLCS was established, and from years where they were nowhere CLOSE to a championship of any kind! There is a 1964 Mets season pass on the bay now that has the same terms on it.

Hey Mike very nice 71 Pirates pass! If you went back in time for that, you could have not only seen an exciting championship season featuring a 36 year old Clemente hitting .341, but you could have seen me at my first major league game! After the game, I scurried about and collected a bunch of the large butter stained Pirate megaphones that they sold popcorn in at the stadium. Still have a stack of them sitting in my bedroom closet back at my parents house! Good memories!

Default Orioles- season pass

I only have a couple season passes in my collection. I missed out on a 1970 Os season pass a few years back (still regret not going higher on that one). Anyway, Id enjoy seeing the Os 69 season as they were a great team and really should have won the Series; still sore from that one. As a side note I took all of my 70 Topps Mets cards and bent them in half, usually at the neck, back in the day. Just hated the Mets! Over the years Ive learned to just dislike them vehemently.

So, if I had to pick a season it would likely be 66. First year for Frank and 1st WS for the AL Orioles; love it.

I dont have the 71 season pass, but that would be a great year as well. Cant beat four 20 game winners (the Os should have won that Series as well ).

Marty, cool story I may have a couple of those megaphones as well. I only got to watch that team on TV. I was 9 during the 1971 Series. I fell in love with baseball because of that team. They had a swagger and cool about them that I loved. They were so diverse and fun to watch. They were Soul Train, American Bandstand, Don Kirshner's Rock Concert, and Hee Haw all rolled together. In terms of diversity I believe they were a trailblazing team and reflective of baseball's future .

Mark my friend the right team won that series.

Mike,

Sure would have put a hampering on your user name and your collecting habits if the Os could have pulled it out . It does forever start the link of the Os vs Pirates (1971, 1979). Id like to get at least another shot at the WS in my lifetime and might as well be against the Pirates.
