More about Mr. Met 1.5

Eric from the awesome Stadium Page says:

Hi,
I saw your post about the freaky Mr. Met from the mid-90’s.  It looks it was introduced in 1994 (the pic you posted must’ve been from 1995 since there was no “swoosh” on the jersey).  From looking at other old programs/yearbooks, the current Mr. Met was introduced in 96.

Check out these pics I scanned from a 1994 Mets program:
1 – Yes, that’s the freak Mr. Met with Dallas Green, Ryan Thompson, Bobby Bonilla and John Franco.
2 – Surely Fred Wilpon’s finest hour!

Wow, I am starting to think this actually happened!  I clearly have erased my brain of any recollection of this.  Maybe I was too busy staring at the “swoosh” jerseys.  Maybe I was just happy Mr. Met was back at all.  And stop calling me Quaid.

I need to learn as much as possible about Mr. Met One Point Five

As for Fred & Stimpy (I know, I know, it’s just a better joke if i phrase it that way) – one thing about Fred Wilpon.  He would never charge you to prin….oh wait never mind, that’s Ren.

Who else has Mr. Met Uno Punto Cinco pics for me?

  1. Gianormous head, eyes that move, adjustable eyebrows, and at least 2 different mouths plus a tongue. The more I see of this guy, the more lame the current Mr. Met gets.

  2. The caption says Mr. Met was a regular at Shea until the late 1970s.

    I frequented Shea the entire 70s…I don’t recall EVER seeing Mr. Met. Anyone have a photo of him in the 70s? Leisure suit, long sideburns, gold chain?

  3. Mediagoon Mediagoon I’ve never seen or noticed the different facial expressions or the tongue, my god!

  4. Mediagoon Mediagoon i still want to hear MrMet explain himself for those dark times though

  5. nickschiavo our theory is that it’s MrMet’s older brother, the one that couldn’t hack it in the fam biz.

  6. Mediagoon nickschiavo MrMet Don’t hate on 1.5. Maybe he just got disenchanted with baseball after the ’94 playoffs were canceled.
