Meet Mr. Mets

There was a lot going on in New York in 1964. Not only was there the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair, but the city's newest ball team, the Mets, had just moved into the spanking brand new Shea Stadium. Shea was just next to the fair, so it was only natural that there be a number of cross promotions between the two organizations. Here we see the team's mascot, Mr. Mets, appearing outside the Hall of Free Enterprise at the Fair. He wasn't the only member of the Mets there that day - we'll meet one more tomorrow.
