Mounted Memories in association with MAB Celebrity Sports, will be hosting a an event that Mets fans won’t want to miss; a two day memorabilia event featuring some stars of the three most significant years of the Mets – 1962, 1969, and 1986.

“We're looking forward to reconnecting with our fans and to have a chance to thank them for their loyal support every year," said pitcher Tom Seaver, winner of 25 games during the 1969 season. "This event is that rare combination of great teammates and great fans ready to have a wonderful time reminiscing."

Fans will have the opportunity to meet and greet the ball players from yesteryear, and will also have the chance to have items autographed. There will also be such items as baseball cards and other memorabilia. Also available for purchase will be souvenirs from the soon-to-be demolished Shea Stadium, such as dirt, bases and balls from this past year. All items are authenticated.

The biggest thrill will come on day two of the event where fans will be able to attend a once-in-a-lifetime VIP cocktail party on Saturday night, November 8, 2008 from 7-10 pm with the 1986 New York Mets. At this event, those in attendance will be able to interact with members of the ’86 team.
