The matchups haven’t all been set yet, but we’re about to begin another season of playoff baseball. And for the first time in 9 years, I have a real rooting interest.

But while we’re waiting, let’s take a look at a piece of memorabilia from the Mets’ first World Series appearance.

If you’ve got $9,999.99 burning a hole in your pocket, you could own the cap Tom Seaver wore in 1969. Press Pass Collectibles is selling the cap, which had previously been owned by a family member of a former Shea Stadium security officer.

(If you’d like something to remind you of the Mets’ last World Series appearance, you could pick up a 2000 National League Championship ring that belonged to minor league coach Roger La Francois or one that belonged to a team trainer for a bit less.)

  1. I love the old beat up caps. I’ve had mine for 7 years and am still not close to buying a new one!
