Look Terrific

With a few days without baseball (wait, you consider tonight’s debacle baseball?), now is a great time to browse through the Handpicked Mets Store and order some things you really don’t need, but would really like to have.

Tom Seaver New York Mets JerseyFor example, this Tom Seaver throwback jersey is SWEET, and is autographed by The Franchise himself, Tom Terrific.

OK, maybe that’s a bit out of your price range … but there are many more affordable options in the store, including a Lenny Dykstra jersey, Doc and Straw tops, and an autographed HoJo road jersey.

New York Mets trailer hitch coverOr, if you’re the type to drag a boat back and forth to the shore, why not dress up the hitch with a Mets trailer hitch cover? Believe me, that’s not the most unusual item I found — have fun perusing yourself by going to the Mets Handpicked Store. Whenever you buy something from there, you’ll be supporting the server costs and associated upkeep of MetsToday — and if there’s any profit at the end of the year, I’ll donate some of it to a worthy charity (or charities).

Joe Janish began MetsToday in 2005 to provide the unique perspective of a high-level player and coach -- he earned NCAA D-1 All-American honors as a catcher and coached several players who went on to play pro ball. As a result his posts often include mechanical evaluations, scout-like analysis, and opinions that go beyond the numbers.
