These two New York Mets team-signed baseballs tell the tales of two similar, but also vastly different, teams. Each won the National League crown but while the 1986 team steamrolled towards their eventual world championship by winning 108 games, the Mets squeeked into the post-season with a mere 82 wins. Each also played in thrilling seven-game World Series. 1973: Signed by 30 including. Manager Yogi Berra and HOF great Willie Mays are both on the sweet spot. Also, Jon Matlack, Wayne Garrett, Don Han, Ed Kranepool, Tom Seaver, Jerry Koosman, Ed Yost, Felix Millan, George Stone, Tug McGraw, Jerry Grote, Craig Swan, Ron Hodges, Ray Sadecki, Rusty Staub, Bud Harrelson, Duffy Dyer, and more. Ball is moderately toned with a good overall look with strong signatures, all about 7 or 8 of 10. 1986: Official NL ball signed by 31. Manager Davey Johnson on the sweet spot. Also, Keith Hernandez, Mookie Wilson, Darryl Strawberry, Len Dytkstra, Gary Carter, Rick Aguilera, Jesse Orosco, Kevin Mitchell, Wally Backman, Mel Stottlemeyer, Ray Knight, Randy Myers, Lee Mazzilli, Tim Teufel, Ed Hearn, Doug Sisk, Rafael Santana and more.
