Greg Prince discovered the Mets when he was 6, during the magical summer of 1969. He is a Long Island-based writer, editor and communications consultant. Contact him here.

Jason Fry is a Brooklyn writer whose first memories include his mom leaping up and down cheering for Rusty Staub. Check out his other writing here.

Patience Proves Terrific

It took ’til the end of summer, but I got a Seaver in 1972. I was so proud that I apparently tacked it to my bulletin board with at least five different pushpins.

    Well Greg,
    It lost it's financial value by tacking it up on the bulletin board, however, the personal value is, as they say, priceless.
    By wearing that jacket, it's possible the picture was taken when Tom opened the previous season at Shea, pitching on a dark grey, blustery and snowy afternoon against Montreal (with Topps inserting a warmer, blue sky background).

    Hmmm…the St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce would have preferred that conspiracy theory to the suggestion that it's chilly in February in their fair city.
