Since the beginning of time obtaining memorabilia of some kind from someone who was more popular than the average person has been a goal of most. For New York Mets fans, it is the same. We all clamor for the best pieces of memorabilia from our favorite franchise to either show off to friends and family or to try and flip for a profit.
I personally try and do the former and display it for all to see. I love collecting memorabilia both signed and unsigned; it gives me a sense of pride that I have a piece of something that has a history or a story behind it. Over the years I have collected a wide variety of memorabilia, some of it Mets related and some of it non-Mets related.
Even though I have collected a bunch of pieces of memorabilia I continue to have a bucket list of pieces that I one day would love to own someday. Some of it is attainable given the appropriate resources and some of it is more of a pipe dream due to the lack of availability.
Mets fans are some of the most passionate fans in baseball and most of them love to display their memorabilia. I am confident that a lot of Mets fans like myself have a bucket list of Mets memorabilia they would love to own.
Even though the Mets do not have as long of a history as some of the other teams in baseball, the list of pieces of memorabilia that could be owned is just as long.
This slideshow will go through my top three pieces of Mets related memorabilia that I hope to own at one point in my life. Some would have sentimental value to me while others would be awesome to own and display for all to see.
