Disguise worn by Former Mets Manager Bobby Valentine

This piece of Mets memorabilia is one that would be so funny to own. Bobby Valentine was thrown out of a game during the Mets 2000 season and instead of relegating himself to the clubhouse like usual, he decided to put on a fake mustache and return to the dugout.

It was a moment in Mets history that will be remembered forever and the fact that it occurred so nonchalantly makes it even more incredible. The Mets announce team was enamored by how Valentine just decided he did not want to leave the dugout and put on a mustache to go incognito.

This disguise turned into a Halloween costume that still is used to this day and wouldn’t it be awesome to be able to go as mustache Bobby valentine for Halloween but be able to use the actual mustache that was used that Summer night in 2000.

This piece of memorabilia is like no other in Mets history, it is iconic but in a humorous way and really had no impact on the Mets’ successes on the field yet it is one of the most brought up moments in Mets history.

Unfortunately, this piece of memorabilia probably does not exist anymore and if it does probably has not been stored properly to even be worth what it would cost to acquire. Regardless, it would be an awesome piece to own for the pure humor aspect of the whole thing and to say I own the mustache that Bobby valentine used as a disguise.
