Mets figure giveaway through OYO Sports

By Danny Abriano

This weekend, Rising Apple and FanSided will be giving four miniature Mets figures away through our friends at OYO Sports.

The limited edition figures, which were created to recognize New York’s appearance in the 2015 World Series, are part of a collection that OYO Sports recently put together.

To check out all of the New York Mets figures offered by OYO Sports, HEAD HERE.

Featured in the giveaway will be:

  • National League Comeback Player of the Year Matt Harvey, who returned from Tommy John surgery this season to post a 2.71 ERA and 1.02 WHIP in 189 1/3 innings during the regular season.
  • David Wright, who returned from a back injury in the second half of the season to help guide the Mets to their first National League East division title since 2006.
  • Daniel Murphy, who went on a remarkable run in the postseason against the Dodgers and Cubs, hitting home runs in six consecutive games.
  • Yoenis Cespedes, whose arrival via trade on July 31 helped to spark the Mets’ offense. Cespedes’ six-week run of dominance in August and September, along with returns from injury by Wright and Travis d’Arnaud, helped turn the Mets offense into a late-season juggernaut.

The figures, which feature multiple accessories and 2015 World Series logos, will be given away during trivia contests on Rising Apple’s Twitter account @RisingAppleBlog.

Those who answer the question correctly first will receive their prize, and will then be responsible for sending a direct message to Rising Apple with shipping information.

While the Mets fell short in the World Series, these figures commemorate one of the most successful seasons in the history of the franchise, and will be fantastic keepsakes.

We want to thank our friends at OYO Sports for the opportunity to give away these one-of-a-kind Mets items to our readers, and look forward to working with them again in the future.
