Mets fans holiday gift guide

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 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!
