Yes, yes it’s your favorite capitalist blogger again. You should be buying a blue Mets jersey because when you’re sitting at home on Opening Day you might as well look good.
This box set makes a killer gift for under $50 which is less than an upper deck ticket for Opening Day! New York Mets 50th Anniversary Collector’s DVD SET. So far this is a best-seller and quite a few people have been purchasing them. $29.99 TODAY
Also, everyone likes 43 better than 63, right? What Mets fan wouldn’t love to read Wherever I Wind Up: My Quest for Truth, Authenticity and the Perfect Knuckleball
Now this isn’t Mets related but it’s still a great gift, a great deal, and far cheaper than a ticket to Opening Day. $30 for the three movies on Blu-Ray!!! The Dark Knight Trilogy (Batman Begins / The Dark Knight / The Dark Knight Rises) [Blu-ray]. You could buy two sets for less than the price of one Opening Day ticket!! The DVD version is only $19.96 – you could get THREE for the price of one Opening Day ticket. Which would your cousin rather have in his stocking? A cool BD box set or a ticket to a game in April. No brainer…
Also let’s not forget @metsgm Sandy Alderson’s favorite show Homeland: The Complete First Season. At just $19.99 you could get three copies…one for Sandy, one for yourself and one for a friend. Or you could buy one ticket to Opening Day. Opening Day seems quite expensive, doesn’t it?
Last time I spoke to Sandy he wasn’t into The Walking Dead: The Complete Second Season but it still would be a nice gift for him or someone you love. This one is only $18.99 so there’s that math again where I multiply by three and make a sarcastic illustrative point. In case you haven’t seen it this is a show about I dunno, vampires or something.
Speaking of Zombies..you can kill some in Call of Duty: Black Ops II. This one is $59.93 which is…you get the joke by now.
Back to the Mets, if you’re looking to spend a little less…under $13 gets you the DVD of New York Mets 50 Greatest Players And it works out that $63 minus 50 for 50 years. You could buy FIVE of these or you could sit in the upper deck by yourself on Opening Day. THIS ONE IS $7.99 TODAY
And Baseball Greatest Games: Santanas 2012 No-hitter is under $9! You could buy this for seven of your friends or you could sit in the upper deck by yourself on Opening Day. THIS ONE IS $5.99 TODAY. So you could actually get ten!
